Visit to the temple of Pashupatinath, situated on the banks of the sacred Bagmati river, the temple of Lord Shiva is truly amazing. Especially visit of early morning to see Hindu rituals on the river bank is worth. Only Hindus are allowed to go inside the Temple complex, but to others also there are plenty of areas to explore around. Pashupatinath, with a tiered golden roof and silver doors, is famous for its superb architecture and is the holiest of Hindu shrines in Nepal. Cremation ghats located at the Bagmati river showcase the funeral rituals of Hindu followers which is very unique.
