  • 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
  • Hindu goddess temple of Bindabashani Mata. One of the best attraction for hindu followers , who visit in Pokhara.
  • One of the famous temple in Pokhara city. Nice to visit the place.
