Barahi temple, Pokhara
(4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Built on a tiny island on Phewa Lake, Barahi temple offers a sanctuary for Hindu worshippers and Buddhists alike. Access the two-storey pagoda via one of the many short (5-minute) private boat rides. Observe the worshippers and idol representing the goddess Durga in the form of a boar. Make an offering, ring a bell, and look at the other Buddha statues around the temple. Pack a picnic to enjoy alongside the old trees and calm surface of the lake. Some food stalls on the island offer fish snacks. Barahi temple is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Pokhara Edition.

  • מקדש קטן על האי שבאגם פיווה בפוקרה. ניתן להגיע לאי בסירה מפוקרה. המקדש עצמו אינו מרשים אבל יפה לראות את עולי הרגל הבאים למקום ויוצרים פסיפס צבעוני. 
  • Go there by boat, the temple is very ordinary, it's rather the island to the pigeons with droppings everywhere so it's a peaceful place with a nice view a little wait for the return.

  • MUST VISIT DURING VISIT OF POKHARA.Nice spectracular view of amazing lake with Macchepucchar mountain,para glider.Scenic beauty is very fine.
  • Must try the boating experience at Fewa Lake and hop by at the Barahi Temple. Very small temple but beautifully decorated. Very packed with Hindu devotees on Saturday. Barahi also known as Varahi in Hindu, is one of the mother goddesses. Barahi represent feminine energy.
