Stopped there for a few hours and just couldn't believe what we were witnessing. This is one of the most holy Hindu temples in all of Nepal, and this is where people bring their loved ones to be cremated. A once in a lifetime experience.

Very impressive place to see, but unfortunately not all the places are allowed to visit and the entrance is pretty expensive. They wanted 1000 NPR for entrance!

Pasupathinath temple was a relief to the mind and soul. Although access road was in bad shape, it was pleasant clean and spiritual inside. A long queu did not hamper the feelings. It was indeed a cleansing occasion
