Pashupatinath is the most important Hindu temple throughout Nepal. It is located at the eastern end of Kathmandu, just a short distance from the international airport. The entire site is situated on both banks of the sacred river Bagmati on the edge of a small forest. To the temple itself, however, can go only Hindus, so that the majority of foreign tourists can only see the exteriors. On the banks of the river are still burned the dead and you will sure meet here several holy men – Sadhu.

The river Bagmati in Pashupatinah

In the center of the entire complex flows the river Bagmati, which is sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists. Unfortunately, after flowing through Kathmandu it looks more like a sewer. Just behind the temple is a sacred cave, but it is unfortunately accessible only to native Hindus.

In front of the temple

The entire complex looks like a small Varanasi. Along the river are ghats, where dead are burned according to the ancient traditions. Each caste has its own.

The most beautiful views of the entire complex are from the eastern bank of river Bagmati. There is also a lot of monkeys, so be careful with any snack.

The outlook of Pashupatinath

From the outlook point above the river is easy to see how the entire complex is extensive. There is often a smoulder from many funerals, during which are the dead bodies burnt. It's up to your ethics, whether you take a picture from here.
