Great Atmosphere
Sep 2021 • Couples
A really amazing place if you want to get in touch with the Hindu culture. We went there on a Saturday and the whole Szenario there was a little bit unrealistic for us. On the one hand people come here to burn the bodies on the other hand people make Tiktok Videos.

A great atmosphere which is really not typical for us Europeans!

The Pashupatinath temple of Lord Shiva has the feeling like in a different world of God's own place.

a complex of temples dedicated mostly to Indian gods such as shiva, there are also several sadus who try to have their photo taken with tourists to collect some money, in the complex there is also a burning ghat, where the Indians cremate the bodies with a ritual on the banks of the river

rip off and deeply touched
Mar 2021
Even as we travelled a lot, we had the so called book experience for giving money for entering the inner part. Only after long talks and friendliness of a good english speaking jong man, we were lured into giving money to the babas, who are more dressed as and alternative kind of begging suits, than actually people looking for enlightenment. Of course we could not enter with the so called special list guests we would be on.
never the less we had a beautiful view on the site and the cremations and find a spot we could take pictures and meditate at the same time, just in peace.
