Pashupatinath Temple, Kathmandu Reviews

  • Hindu Devotees around the globe have a deep respect for Pashupatinath Temple, which is also a World Heritage site. The devotees have a strong wish to visit the temple for paying homage and worship. Many tourists also visit here for seeing the historic temple area and traditional cremation. The temple has a large area, some parts of which, have been nicely developed. Further development is in progress. However, the forest area needs to be cleaned and managed properly. Besides worshipping, the temple area should also include facilities for disseminating ancient Sanatana teachings and meditation techniques.

  • Beautiful architecture. Vibrant place. Great experience. The temple complex is beautiful when you look beyond the crowd. Beyond the obvious hush and rush and colourful clothes of the people; observe the faith, observe the detailed artistic work, understand the meaning of Hinduism. That's the vibrancy to observe.

  • This is one of the UNESCO World heritage site in the valley and has got lot to offer. It is so lively, colorful and vibrant to sum it up. Temples located at the bank of river, with many artistic monuments around can be found. Major attractions for foreigners will be to see the hindu rituals on the deceased. Sadhus, follower of lord Shiva are quite a sight as well. This place is huge... So go with time and patience and enjoy the peaceful ambience. And the view of the temple from the top of other Bank of river is just amazing.

  • holy place of Nepal which is also included in the list of world heritage site. people from Hindu caste only can enter inside of the temple to worship lord Shiva. But the people from other countries than Nepal can only visit outside of the temple. this is great holy place of all time. i thought everyone should visit this holy place.

  • One of the places rich in diversification and acceptance. Wide range of worldwide tourism for devotion and religious belief. Enlisted in the world heritage site, pasupatinath temple is a peaceful place found in the heart in Kathmandu and where someone can spend all day.
