“Out of track, interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is a temple where not too many tourists go to, so you get to watch a lot of locals that are praying, chatting away or even thise who go to read their oroscopes. Interesting

“A genuine Hindu temple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

A real Hindu temple, simple, a little dirty but no hassel. It is believed to be very old and the usual wonder is how such a large stone, which is not local, came to this place.

“First stop up to the National Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Small temple where to stop before a nice hike in the National Park, a small oasis of nature after the noisy and always intense experience of Kathmandu.

“Overhyped”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Nothing but a large stone statue of Lord Vishnu sleeping on a bed of snakes on water. The water in the pond appeared dirty. The premises surrounding the pond were also not properly maintained. The access road to the site was almost nonexistent, full of potholes.Was disappointing after an expensive & bumpy taxi ride. Good only for staunch devotees.........
