The Pashupatinath Temple is the most famous and sacred Hindu temple in Nepal that is located on the banks of the Bagmati River, approximately 5 km north-east in Kathmandu. This temple was listed in UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites’s in 1979. Pashupatinath Temple is unique in that way, that is a place which is important to both Buddhists and Hindus but in the main temple, only Hindus or Buddhists are actually allowed in. There are four main gates of the main Temple as all the gates are made by pure silver and the roof was made by the gold.This temple is also important to those surrounding countries like India and Bangladesh mainly for those who follows Hindusm. It is the most highlighted tourist attraction¬† in Nepal as tourist can see the traditional architectures and arts which represents the history of Pashupatinath temple and Nepal.

Once you reach Pashupatinath temple, you will never get bored to spend time here as you can enjoy your time seeing Sadhus having different arts on their body which is mostly seen at the time of Shivaratri festival mostly celebrated by worshiping the Lord Shiva. People used to have marijuana (vhang) with sadhus as a gracious gift from The Lord Shiva.  This is the place where hindu people actually cremate their death body, if you visit here you can be the witness to anything like this. There a bridge right across the Bagmati river, from where you can clearly see the convention site.
