Guide to Temples in Nepal

Because of the fact that Nepal has seen few violent invasions and also did not really fall under the colonial rule of the British Empire, it has retained many ancient temples in more or less their original conditions. The authentic Newari architecture is seen here and there in almost all the temples. Nepal was primarily a Hindu state before it was declared secular in 2007. There are multiple Hindu temples and shrines scattered all across the country. From dingy alleys to hilltops with a majestic view, Nepal has the best of them.

Here are some of the religious places of Nepal that are worth a visit for their architecture, spirituality and beauty.

1. Pashupatinath Temple

Pashupatinath temple in Kathmandu, Nepal is a temple complex by the River Bagmati in Kathmandu Valley. Pashupati is an avatar of Lord Shiva, in his All-father avatar. Here he is the patron god of the entire country of Nepal. Pashupatinath is the main Nepal Shiva temple. The main shrine here is a double-storied pagoda-like Newari structure with the sacred Shiva lingam inside.

2. Swayambhunath Temple

Swayambhunath Temple is a classic Tibetan style Buddhist shrine, located near Thamel. Also known as the Monkey Temple, this Nepal temple offers a stunning view of the entire Kathmandu valley. After ascending 365 steps one can get to see the main shrine with a golden Buddha statue, prayer wheels and many small temples around.

3. Changu Narayan Temple

Changu Narayan is the oldest temple of Nepal. Nestled amidst the champak trees of Bhaktapur, this 4th century temple has a very popular legend about Lord Vishnu associated with its past. There are numerous wall carvings all around the temple complex, including the ten avatars of Vishnu and some tantric deities like Goddess Chhinnamasta.

4. Muktinath Temple

Located along the famous Annapurna circuit trekking route of Nepal, Muktinath Temple is believed to be the place where Goddess Sati’s forehead had fallen when Lord Shiva did the dance of destruction after her death. A unique feature of this temple is the 108 bull faces, through which water flows and is used for sacred baths. Staying true to Nepalese culture of intermingling Hinduism and Buddhism, this shrine is known as Muktinath-Chumig-Gyatsa among the Buddhist followers in spite of being a Nepal Hindu temple.

5. Budhanilkantha Temple

Budhanilkantha Temple, also known as Narayanthan Temple is a shrine dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Here instead of his usual standing or sitting posture, the Lord is reclined in a straight manner on his eternal home, the coil of Sheshanag, floating in the Ocean of Cosmos. This shrine is located at the base of Shivapuri Hill. Though only Hindu devotees are allowed into the sanctum, others can observe stature from the outside. The statue has been cut and carved out meticulously of a single basalt monolith.

6. Dakshinkali Temple

Kali is the goddess of death and destruction of the evil and protector and preserve of the good, and a feminine symbol of doomsday. Dakshinkali temple in Pharphing Village, 14 km from Kathmandu city is devoted to this fearless goddess mother. This temple is known to be very awakened – which means the wishes of the devotees here get fulfilled. Dussehra and Tihar (Diwali) are celebrated her with fervour.

7. Bajrayogini Temple

Located on the banks of Sali Nadi in Sankhu Valley of Kathmandu, Bajrayogini is a famous tantric temple known for mysterious caves and the striking idol of the goddess Bajrayogini.  People visit this temple, take a dip in the river to wash off their sins and offer puja to the goddess.

    Bhupendra Singh

    New delhi

    Bhupendra's 6 days trip to Nepal

    I recently traveled to Nepal, covering Kathmandu, Nagarkot, and Pokhara. I am very thankful to Mr. Bhagwat for all the arrangements, including Pasupathi Nath Temple Darshan and other famous places. The trip was a dream come true Mr. Bhagwat planned a perfect trip with excellent accommodations. All t
    he transportation was on time with a good cab and driver. Mr. Bhagwat was personally taking care of each and everything, and he was just a phone call away for anything we need. He is a fantastic person who guided us as well for the excellent shopping places. He provided a very dedicated service with proper follow-up. The only regret from this tour that we missed to view Mount Everest our flight got canceled due to bad weather; however, we got all the refunds. Thanks to the Himalayan tour agency, I will highly recommend them to others who are planning their trips to Nepal.

    Ratnateja's 7 days trip to Nepal

    Travel Agent given good response. But cab provided for pokhara is not in good condition. Also driver is not cooperative, not understanding our communication which resulted we didn't satisfied that part of the tour which covers 60 percent of our tour, due to that particular cab and driver. The ca
    b given troubles in between mid way of our journey which we feel bad. I suggest next pilgrims should check communication of cab driver and check condition of cab before starting long journeys. Rest travel agent is very cooperative and flexible. Agent is given good response and cooperation in every need. My family enjoyed with Everest mountains drive by flight round trip. It is worth seeing.

    We enjoyed our small trip to Kathmandu and Nagarkot. Bhagwat made good arrangements for the trip. His drivers are good and professional. Bhagwat also arranged for our Everest flight at the last moment. We loved the location of Katmandu Arts hotel. It is right in the midst of the market area.
