Barahi temple, Pokhara

(4.1/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • This temple is situated in the lake. Just takes a few minutes to visit it during the boat trip. Worth a quick visit as there is an interesting temple.  more »
  • This small temple occupies practically all of a small island in the middle of the Lake, is just a few minutes by a boat from the shore opposite and makes a full turn of the island before landing. The atmosphere is very relaxed and mystical, with the sound of bells from prayer and the presence of hundreds of pigeons. The visit itself lasts about 15 minutes then you have to go back on the boat back to shore. Alternatively you can get there by hiring a canoe or some kind of pedal boats.
