Kathmandu and Pashupatinath are synonymous in many ways . It is said that a journey to Nepal is incomplete without a visit to the temple of Lord Pashupatinath. Surprisingly, while the goddess at Manakamana grants wishes when one sacrifices an animal or a bird at the temple, Lord Pashupatinath (or the Lord of the animals) does not seem to encourage animal sacrifice of any kind. In fact, it is considered a sin to carry leather bags, cameras, and leather belts inside the main temple complex. The main temple is a treat for the senses. Much cleaner than the Manakamana temple, the Pashupatinath temple was also relatively empty. The pagoda-shaped temple has a huge statue of a bull right in front of it. I got a glimpse of the deity without much difficulty. Unfortunately, I could not capture the beautiful temple in my clicks, as cameras (even mobile phone cameras) are banned inside.
