About Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu

Pashupatinath Temple, located on the banks of Bagmati River, is one of the most important shrines of Shiva – not only in Nepal but in the entire world. This is the abode of Nepal’s national deity, Pashupatinath manifestation of Lord Shiva, where he is the father of all living beings in the cosmos. This is not a single monument but a sprawling collection of temples, shrines, ashrams and occasional rock inscriptions – all packed together into one complex. The main temple which houses Lord Pashupatinath Mandir in Nepal has a pagoda style gilded roof, sides covered in silver and the rest of it made of well-carved wood. The sacred Shiva lingam resides inside, guarded by his faithful servant Nandi Bull. Shiva’s consort Goddess Sati has her own temple called Guheshwori. This is one of those temple precincts where cremations happen inside the premises. By the holy River Bagmati, Hindu people perform the final rituals for their deceased. Pashupatinath Temple is one of the 7 UNESCO World Heritage sites of Kathmandu Valley. It is said that the 12 Jyotirlingas of India make up the body of Lord Shiva, while Pashupatinath Temple in Nepal is the head. One cannot help but feel mesmerised by an expanse of the temple complex and the spiritual atmosphere that hovers over the place.

History and Legend:

Like every Hindu temple, Pashupatinath Nepal too has its own share of history and legends. Recorded history says that the temple as it stands today was constructed by Lichhavi King Shupushpa in the 5th century after the old temple was ruined by termites. Over the years, multiple new shrines were added, including a Vishnu and Rama temple. But the actual origin is lost in myths and legends. Some believe the Shiva lingam of Pashupatinath Kathmandu was self-manifested. Other believe that Lord Shiva himself descended upon the valley in the form of an animal and he liked this place so much that he blessed it with his ‘Lord of all animals’ form.

    Pbaldock

    Pbaldock's 6 days trip to kathmandu

    So one review, two experiences. SNOWYODA. 10/10 Excellent Snowyoda and Sumit in particular were just fantastic; the holiday was excellent with personal service in perfect English (turns out Sumit has a Masters from Bath Uni) well beyond expectations! They organised a superb two week tour in mid May 2020 and even after we were stranded with the Covid19 lockdown in Nepal, Sumit continued to give support, help, local advice and assistance... Invaluable in such a bad situation. Organising and planning the 14 day tour was so easy, and once there we continued to adapt and tailor the tour to suit our needs. We started in Kathmandu, then flew to Pokhara before taking the car to Bandipur and Chitwan... all fantastic but gliding down the river in a canoe at Chitwan with a cacophony of birdsong was just magical. We finished in Nagarkot with each day starting with sunrise over the Himalayas and Everest; all without leaving you bed. Great hotels, drivers, itineraries in an amazing country and a very safe pair of hands tour operator- Snowyoda. Totally recommended. Thank you Sumit and Sabu. TRAVEL TRIANGLE ... 3/10 very poor. Once we had agreed to book with Snowyoda TT were a nightmare. They sent a link to payment, but it didn’t work, wouldn’t take enough to pay for the tour, etc. So agreed to pay by Bank Transfer... sent the money (£ thousand ++) and 10 days later they hadn’t received it.... very stressful . Had to get my bank to request the money back and it turns out the TT bank account number they gave me didn’t exist, the transfer had been rejected, they did not know. I got the money back, but again they could not send a link to pay that worked....total shambles. In the end I paid Snowyoda direct and it was all as sweet as apple pie after that once TT were not involved.

    Dhruv's 7 days trip to kathmandu

    Vaishali hotel in kathmandu had week wifi. Initially the driver that we guy didn't know anything. He was totally new and new drivers are not recommended to go on a commercial hill trip. Agency changed the driver and this one also didn't know route to Nagarkoat and chandragiri. Driver was very helpful and experienced otherwise. We missed Lumbini because of inefficiency of driver management. Nagarkoat sunrise and hotel stay Thamel market stay

    Trip was overall good, enjoyed a lot. Only suggestion for improvement that trip would be much more excellent they mentioned before that inspite of inclusive of conveyance charge we have to pay + inclusive of breakfast charges we have to pay +inclusive of toll charges we have to pay for all these. The trip was planned excellent, and every point was covered. Nepal is a very beautiful and clean place.

    Arjun Pai

    New delhi

    Arjun's 6 days trip to kathmandu

    Our trip to Nepal was a mixed bag of memorable and things that could have been avoided. Let me start with the positives first: 1. Mr. Tripathi had structured the trip well. He had optimised the routes to ensure we spent more time sightseeing than on the road travelling. 2. The paper work for entry to Nepal was quick and we did not face any issue there. 3. The hotel bookings too were seamless and we did not find any issues during check-in and check-out. 4. He stood by to most of his commitments and was always a patient listener. 5. The driver knew the Nepal map at the back of his head and drove safely. The things that could have been better are: 1. The driver should be made aware of all the places that are to be covered. There were certain places that we were told to us but the driver wasn't aware and it always led to confusion. It always ended up with a call to Mr. Tripathi, thus wasting some time during the trip. 2. The driver had a habit of misleading us and had several conflicting arguments to avoid visiting a place despite having promised to us by the agent. He either acted unaware or said that the place wasn't accessible to Indian cabs or he wasn't aware of the route. All these excuses were proven to be lies as he subsequently blurted out that he had visited the place earlier. 3. The driver looked into his comfort than ours, he would first find a parking spot and then make us walk a considerable distance instead of dropping us at the gate and then finding a spot to park. I'm stating this as my parents are old and it was an issue making them walk the extra mile. 4. The driver had a bad habit of chewing pan masala and rolling down the window from time to time to spit out the same. Not only was it annoying but my dad sitting at the back seat was never able to open his side of the window due to this unhygienic behaviour. 5. On day 1, due to the pt. 2 we couldn't see many temples of Lumbini from inside as the place closes by 5:00 pm. On the last day to avoid visiting Doleshwar temple the driver lied that the temple we saw at Darbar Square was the one that we were looking for.

    It was really great Nepal trip... Except for chitwan hotel and their facility it was beyond my expected costly . They took 22000 INR for food and jungle safari. I think they took lots of commission in this... Rest pokhra, lumbini and kathmandu was great Pokhra

    Yes, only people of Hindu faith can enter the temple.

     

    Pashupatinath Temple, although located quite near the epicentre, has not sustained much damage in the 2015 earthquake except a few cracks. It has withstood the test of time, and all the temples are fit enough for a visit.
