"Mukthinath" word is derived from "Mukti" and "Nath". "Mukti" means "Salvation" and "Nath" means "God or Master". Mukti holds great significance for all spiritual people. Muktinath this Sanskrit name itself has religious overtone and a sort of emotional ring to it for the devout Hindus.
The holy shrine, which is said to have arisen on its own, is one of eight such shrines (the others include Srirangam, Sri Mushnam, Tirupati, Naimisaranyam, Thottadri, Pushkaram, and Badrinath).
There are 108 waterspouts in the backyard of this temple called as Muktidhara where frozen water is continuously flowing from the bullhead and two Kunda (ponds in front of the temple). Taking bath in these 108 waterspouts and two Kunda (ponds) believes to bring salvation.
