Pashupatinath

Pashupatinath Temple

Pashupatinath is the holiest Hindu pilgrimage located in Nepal. There are linga representations of Shiva as well as statues, altars, and temples committed to different divinities in the premises. A temple devoted to Shiva existed at this destination in 879 AD. However, the present temple was built by King Bhupatindra Malla in 1697. A gold-plated top, silver entryways and woodcarvings of the finest architectural quality can be seen in the pagoda construction. Guheswari Temple, restored in 1653, speaks for the female “constrain”. It is committed to Satidevi, Shiva’s first wife, who gave up her essence in the blazes of her father’s fire ritual.
