  • This temple is located (I don't know if it's still there after the earthquake) on the top of a staircase, where countless people, tourists, devout, monks, climb in search of religiosity of the place. On the way I was charmed with the Nepalese people, humble, poor, but of a purity and an inner peace, that just by looking, I conveyed this serenity if spirit. The temple and the stairs were filled with monkeys, which although seem docile, you can't get too close to them, because they are wild and bite any threat. There, as in all temples have come up many monks, of all ages. Always smiling and shaking hands with the hands attached to his chest. A wonderful place to meet, if it's still there.

  • Really it was soooo beautiful place.i love dis place..the surrounding of dis is awesome
  • To enjoy the peace and solitude that nature offers. And also one of the best place to visit for hindu
  • Good place but Lots of controversy .locals and many people say that the owner business man made the face of the god ( mahadev) similar to his face . It totally looks artificial. But you can go ones if you have enough time
  • Nice place far from city crowd, If u enter from front gate they will charge you 100, nothing special after paying Nrs100, back gate is free, children park inside
  • Om namah shivay
