People have different assumptions about the temple. According to the local people, the temple was originally dedicated to Lord Shiva which was later transformed into a Buddhist temple by Padmasambhava. Though differences persist about the Hindu or Buddhist origins, the temple follows tradition which doesn’t clash with both the religions.
