Pashupatinath Temple Reviews & Ratings
Lovely religious temple. It's an interesting experience for anybody. Especially when you consider the religious activities that are carried out at this holy site. Be sure to show respect in face of all that you may see, particularly the religious burning of deseased loved ones on the pyre. Beyond that the temple is famous for its monkeys, there is a small enclave of grass at the summit where you could theoretically sit down and have a picnic with the monkeys, I kinda want to do that the next time I visit as the monkeys are an entertaining company. There are various stalls at the entrance selling trinkets of all sorts, remember to haggle, HARD. Especially if you are a foreigner, if they say the cost of a bracelet is 300rupees, you know the actual price is 100-150 and not 300 at all. So despite what you are told make sure to stand your ground so you pay the fair price of the labor involved in making that product.
Well managed. The shoe locker, valuable asset locker were the new added feature which allowed us to keep our things safe (things that are not allowed inside a Hindu temple). The place was clean, peaceful and had a different religious vibe. Peaceful, and well managed. The aarati at the evening is something not to be missed. And don't play with the monkeys. Let them be on their own.
One of the important sacred temples for Hindus. The ancient Shiva temple has a magnetic charm. The temple is located in a sprawling complex. One of the interesting facts is that the priests who are in charge of all the rituals and worship in the temple are from Karnataka. This is a must visit place in Kathmandu. Non-Hindus are not allowed inside the inner courtyard of the temple premises.
It is called as national deity, Temple of Hindu religion which is equally respected by Buddhist and religion of Indian sub-continental region. The temple has wide area and can be accessed from four different gates located in four different directions. The main Priest is historically selected from Indian Bhatta Brahman. There is no historical evidence about the exact date of establishment of the shrine. It has the highest possibility of tourism in Nepal.
Loved it. What an amazing cultural experience. Very grateful they allow us foreigners to attend their traditional rituals. I paid extra for a guide while I was there and I am glad I did. I learned a lot and it really enhanced the experience.
