A stone inscription found on the temple’s left side dates from 753 AD. Inside the shrine, a tall natural Shiva Ling is covered in copper. Subarna means “good body” in Sanskrit, hence everyone who worships at this temple is said to have a good body. The temple is known in Newari as Lun Chu Mahadev, meaning the Mahadev who bestows riches onto his believers.
