This place is the most important Hindu site in the country and one of the main shiva temples of the subcontinent which attracts pilgrims and sadhus from all over India! In Sanskrit, Pashu means animal and Patinath, Master. This place, Master of the animal, is dedicated to the god Shiva. More than a temple, it is a holy place. Built on the banks of the sacred Bagmati River. The ritual life is as much alive as in the time of its origins. Like the Ganges of which it is a tributary, the cremations are always there daily …
The sacred site of Pashupatinath is vast and contains many Hindu temples of the highest importance. We will explain all the symbolism of these places that accompany believers in the main stages of their lives, from birth to cremation. However, the interior of the temples is forbidden to non-Hindus and we will ask the visitor to respect the families of the deceased and to limit themselves to taking pictures!
We offer you :
Walk from Pashupatinath to Bodhnath
This short walk is a pleasant and short walk of about twenty minutes through fields and villages, dotted with garlands of prayer flags and lulled by Hindi music. We will cross the river in front of the Guhyeshwari temple, and we will return nicely towards Bodhnath, in this unspoilt nature.0
