  • A must visit for all Hindus all over the world. Non Hindus are not allowed. However, replica Pashupati Nath temple are also in India for those who are unable to visit Nepal due to age and cost.  more »
  • Please visit the temple complex only if you know what to come and you want to see it. The temple itself may not be entered by non-Hindus. On the banks of the river the combustion ceremonies take place, it is not for everyone watching as people are cremated quite publicly and the ashes are then carried into the river. In the evening, joyful ceremonies with music take place in front of the temple and on the immediate shore the corpse burns take place, which is already difficult to digest as a European. For the life of the Hindus this is completely normal, because one attains rebirth. I thought it was very interesting, some of our group didn't think it was good, but everyone should decide for themselves.

  • I love coming to Pashupatinath. As a foreigner, I am not allowed in the temple, but strolling the grounds and taking in the spiritual atmosphere is always very refreshing and enlivening.  more »
