Kalinchowk Bhagwati is a Hindu shrine dedicated to Goddess Kali located in the Kalinchowk village of Dolkha district. It falls inside the Gaurishankar Conservation Area; and is mostly visited by the Hindu pilgrims throughout the year.
Kalinchowk is named after the hilltop shrine Kali- the Hindu Goddess and a symbol of Power. From here, two giant rivers: Sunkoshi and Tamakoshi originates. At the top, the shrine resides facing south with the background of scenic mountains. The site is surrounded by metal tridents and Bells.
