Baraha Chhetra is one of the four greatest Hindu pilgrimages. This is the spot where Varaha, the boar incarnation of Lord Vishnu, protector of the universe, fought with the demon Hiranakshya and killed him. Apart from the main cenotaph dedicated to Varaha, there are many other temples that abide the image of Vishnu's boar incarnation. The Varaha Chhetra (Kshetra) Temple lies in the east of Nepal around 20 km from Dharan at the convergence of the Sapta Koshi and Koka rivers. The Varaha Chhetra temple is one of the most sanctified tirtha's of Nepal. The Varaha temple contains figurines from the 5th century and in front of the shrine is a stone where you can test how free of sin you are, if who is able to raise the stone is without any sin.
