Visit Bindhya Basini Temple, a temple dedicated to the goddess Bhagwati where both Hindu and Buddhist communities come to worship. Locals pray at the temple, holding a range of ceremonies, the most common being weddings. To get to the temple you need to climb 50 stairs, but the natural scenery surrounding the site and the importance of the temple make the climb worth it. At 914 m (3,000 ft) above sea level, the site offers breathtaking views of the Annapurna Ranges. Before you enter the temple, make sure to take your shoes off and wear conservative clothes. Bindhya Basini Temple is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Pokhara Edition.

    nice temple. pleasant atmosphere. positive vibes are felt in the air itself and the best part is that no one will ask you to give donations u can give it as per your will no force donation are asked in the name of god. The best day to visit is sat and Tuesday but you will find a lot of people and long queues for darshan

Where to stay in Pokhara

The country's second largest city has long been on the radar of international travelers, so you won't be disappointed with the number of places to stay in town. Most people look no further than the lakeside area, and if you're only in town for a short while, it really makes sense to stay by the water. You'll find standard larger hotels and pristine boutiques with attractive gardens and views, as well as a number of guesthouses run by families and aimed at backpackers. If you're going to be in town for a while longer, take a look at the rental properties available, either by the lake or in some of the less-frequented residential districts.
