Its a replica of Pashupati Nath temple (Shiva temple) of Kathmandu. Its built in the Pagoda style. A must visit in Varanasi if you are into art, history and architecture.

find a auto rickshaw tuk-tuk driver and has them take you around to all the temples in the Sarnath area (including monasteries,,,mind your p's and q's) and enjoy the wonderful vibrations and quiet of lovely Sarnath. Highly recommended!

Unlike many of the Hindu temples in India, we found ourselves alone when visiting the Nepali temple. There is a nice ambience and attractive architecture. The views over the Ganges are also excellent.

A must see while in Varanasi with its carved depictions of the karma sutra. They charge a few rupees but it's well worth it.
