LEGEND: SACRIFICE TO THE TIGERS
According to legends, King Maharath ruled a large town located between Panauti and a nearby town Sankhu. King Maharath has three sons, and the youngest Mahahridaya was of very benevolent nature. Once, the three princes were traveling and entered a jungle. They saw a Tigers with her 5 cubs. The Tiger was thin and weak. Prince Mahahridaya asked his brothers why the Tigres was so weak and they replied she was weak and thin due to the lack of food. The kind hearted prince thought it would be an act of great kindness if he could feed the tigers with his own body. so he started feeding the hungry tigers ripping off his body parts with branches of trees, without the knowledge of his brothers and died.

It is beleived that the Stupa at Namobuddha houses the remians of the kind hearted prince. The benevolent prince's soul went straight to the heaven and is believed to have reincarnated in Nepal's Lumbini. It is said that, when Lord Buddha arrived at Namobuddha after receiving enlightenment, he revealed to his disciples that he had sacrificed his life at the spot in the earlies incarnation and the remains were housed there. The place is now regarded as a holy pilgirmage and devotees offer worship and light oil lamps in reverence.
