A visit to the Pashupatinath Temple

Pashupatinath Temple, first established in the 17th century, is one of the biggest, most sacred among the temples of Lord Shiva in the world, located on the banks of the Bagmati River. Believers in Pashupatinath (mainly Hindus) are allowed to enter the temple premises. Anyone not born in Nepal or India is considered a non-Hindu by the temple authorities. Non-Hindu visitors are allowed to have a look at the temple from the other bank of Bagmati river. The temple is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
