Pashupatinath Temple, Kathmandu Reviews

  • It was nice. I got to take many photos of Sadhu men. But. I feel as a UNESCO heritage site it's not well cared for. Also I was not allowed in that part because I'm a woman and I was not allowed to go there because it's only for Hindus. Wonder what my ticket entry was for. I would expect they would rebuild faster after that earthquake that happened 3 years ago.

  • I went in the month of March 2012, You are not allowed to click photo inside the main Lord Shiva temple. There is always a huge queue, being a Hindu I can understand its importance. The river was dry and a monkey took my offering while I was taking tour of the temple ( Attaching his pics ) . You can find lot of out statues which reveals very old culture and presence of the temple. For very old people or who cant walk much, should not take full trip of temple.

  • The temple really has an incredibly energetic aura. You feel the vibrations of the thousands of pilgrims who travel here. The heat radiating off the main temples actually cause the rain to evaporate while we were there. As someone who isn't a Hindu, I would definitely recommend visiting the location, simply for the energy which radiates from here. The only thing you may have to battle is a big crowd of visitors.

  • Hindu Devotees around the globe have a deep respect for Pashupatinath Temple, which is also a World Heritage site. They 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.

  • One of the oldest temple in Nepal. Hindus temple.Most beautiful place.. We can't describe its beauty in word.amazingly beautiful.. Sacred place.. And if we are in Nepal you must visit here..
