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.

The nepali temple is having a beautiful architecture, in a high position over the ghats. It's a tranquil spot, you can sit outside the temple or finding peace in the narrow space inside. Interesting statues and wooden crafts decorating the temple. Worth spending some time.

This is a small sample of Kathmandu in Varanasi. The wooden temple, probably around 200 years old, sits just beside the Manikarnika ghat. This is easily one of the, if not the most intricately sculpted temples of Varanasi. The alls of the temple have sculptures of mythic creatures, gods etc. Its a must visit. There is a nominal entry fee,... More

The Nepali temple has the characteristic Nepalese architecture. When you take off your shoes to enter also remove your socks - there are wet areas. You can walk through most of the in- and outside and you'll find some lovely wood carvings of gods and creatures and flowers and also wonderful wood carved windows set into the brick walls. There...

This mandir was built by Nepali Rajas of wood. Intricate wood work is on show. Well maintained and neat. Feels like Pashupathinathji in Kashi. Ifeel a must visit. View from the top is quite good.

It's a very beautiful temple situated right in the middle of Varanasi. It has just been restorted and its colours are vibrant. It is actually a very small temple, which makes it all the more beautiful. Makes a good quiet spot from all the buzzing and noise in Varanasi.
