(260+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • A holy site in the middle of a beautiful lake, what else could you ask more. For those who're planning to visit Pokhara, Tal Barahi temple is a must go. One of the most beautiful shrine I've seen in my life.
  • If you plan around the sun and how you want to spend your time on the lake you can get an amazing experience out of this. Lovley little temple in the middle of the lake.
  • What could be more fun than being at a religious Temple in middle of the lake? This place is rich of awesomeness.
  • Beautiful place and awesome scenario. Everything can be seen from here. Mountains, lake, hills. Beautiful
  • As a Photographer and traveler, i just loved this place. A temple in the center of phewa lake. Oh so mesmerizing. You can took boats from any points of phewa lake. And its cheap. Boatmans are very friendly. They will offer you to sail if you wish.
