Pashupatinath Temple

The Pashupatinath Temple is located in Kathmandu and is one of seven sites in the Kathmandu Valley that UNESCO has placed on the World Heritage Sites list. This temple is one of the most important Hindu temples in the country, dedicated to Pashupati, the Lord of Animals. It is located on the banks of the holy river Bagmati, built in the 5th century AD on the site of a previous temple destroyed by termites. Over time, smaller temples were built around this temple, and most of them were damaged in the 2015 earthquake, while Pashupatinath Temple remained intact. The temple is surrounded by stalls selling various props related to Hinduism, beads, offerings (prasad), fragrances, powder in rainbow colors, etc.
