  • There are in fact several temples. This sacred place for Hindus. Everything pure and worthy. Because the area of the temple is on a hill, it offers good views of Pokhara and in sunny weather in the mountains.

  • One of the historical tample in Nepal plus we can view beautiful scenario of Pokhara valley.
  • This is one of the famous place for the Hindus people to offer some ritual. If would be great if temple management committee stop to let devotees scarify animals at this temple.
  • All time popular temple in the valley. Evening full of tranquility, festivity full of pilgrimage and days full of bright views of valley on the South-East and the Mountain range on the North.
  • Awesome Peaceful place in heart of city . Visit early morning to avoid lines except on festive days .
  • One of the best place I ever seen
