Badimalika Temple , located in Bajura district of Seti Zone, is one of the major temples in Nepal. The temple is dedicated to Bhagwati. Malika Chaturdashi is the major annual festival that is held in this temple. The temple is served by two priests, one representing Kalikot district while the other priest from Bajura district.
Every year there is a fair at this temple during the month of Bhadra.( August) Pilgrims come from all over Nepal thinking that their wishes will be fulfilled if they pray at the temple. There are two official fairs during Ganga Dashara and Janai Purnima.
To reach Badimalika temple, one has to make a difficult trek lasting 2-3 days from Martdi, the headquarters of Bajura district. The temple is at a remote location and since the route to the temple is not well developed, there is a lack of lodges and restaurants for the travelers to rest and eat. Thus all the necessary amenities need to be carried by the travelers themselves. During the trek, one can witness various species of wild flowers, and various domestic animals like sheep, goats, and buffaloes, grazing on the hills.
To reach Martdi by road, one has to first go to Dhangadhi or Nepalganj and from there reach Saafebagar of Achham. From Saafebagar, there is a motor able road that leads up to Bramhatola Serabazar. During rainy seasons, there is no alternative but to walk from Saafebagar.
A domestic flight from Nepalganj to Bajura airport is also available. From Kolti, a day's trek will lead to Martadi, the headquarters of Bajura district.
