  • A place of incredible true spiritual experience. I did it once through a tour company but after that I walked for km to get there. I can't explain but the moment you get in the temple premises, the energy is incredible. Soak as much as you can. View of all five faces of the kings was something I will not forget.

  • It is great place to visit and really auspicious. Very nice ancient infrastructure made by old kings. I am very lucky and contented after visiting there. It is also located at very cunning atmosphere. I haven't word to express my feelings to describe this place. Just I pray for this place to be in long in future as it is now. पशुपतिनाथ की जय हो !!! 😍#काठमांडू भोले बाबा की जय हो !!! हर हर महादेव !!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
