Tulanarayan Temple is a small temple situated in the courtyard of INDRESWOR.
It shelters a stone image of the Hindu God VISHNU (also named NARAYAN) called TULANARAYAN.
In an inscription on a gold plate dating from 1400AD mentions King JAYASINGH RAMVARDHAN making an offering in Gold, called “TULADAN”, equal to his body weight.
In front of the temple there is the stone column with a perforation on its top that supported the huge scales that were used on that occasion.
Although the temple itself has been greatly restored over the centuries, the beautiful stone image of NARAYAN that you see today was presented and installed during the offering in 1382 AD and has never moved.
The statue is greatly regarded by Art lovers and devotees who come from far to see it.
