A beautiful small serene Hindu Temple for Durga Devi (known here as Bharahi ) is in the midst of a beautiful lake of clean water. Situated in the City of Pokhara, Nepal, the lake has great settings with the mountain-range in the background. There are coats , rowed by qualified persons to take you to the temple. There are kiosks which supply life jackets to the visitor for a nominal cost.
The temple is , as in most of the places in Nepal, of Pagoda style. Reasonably big area with well grown trees , the temple presents a cool place to worship and relax.

A magnificent place to visit while you're in Pokhara. Offers a panoramic view of the mountain range.
There are several places where you can take a boat to Bahari temple. Take the boat dock near Hallan Chowk, which is the nearest to Bahari temple. Otherwise, be prepared to shell out more unless you want to enjoy a long boat trip. You can ride a boat with other tourists for only NPR 100. Don't forget to rent a life jacket for NPR 20.

A modest Hindu Temple on Lake Fewa, you can take a calm row out either with a hired driver or not.
With driver & 15 minute wait, its 710Rs.
Life jackets are required.
If Hitchcock's The Birds freaks you out, note that the complex is inundated with pigeons.
And yes, Google Maps is correct: there is a floating public toilet

Spent about 30 minutes here as organised by our tour company. Beautiful temple and very ornate. Extremely busy that day with many large tour groups vying for space, not only with each other but the pigeons, too! There are hundreds of them, dive bombing from all angles!

Sadly, the weather was not on our side that day - overcast and no view of the mountains. Probably wouldn't visit again.

Its like a tiny island surrounded by phewa lake. Can go there by a short boat trip. I found nothing special in it and my recommendation is not to go there until you have religious purpose.

Barahi Temple is one of the holy place to visit while in Pokhara. The temple is located in the middle of the lake, Phewa. One shoiuld rent a boat to go there and its splendid. We rent a boat and reached the temple. It looked nice with pigeons. Some were feeding them. I saw a woman who freed her pigeon there. It was some kind of good luck. Luckily it was the occassion on nepali new year so the temple was lively.(though we were told its always lively) We took some great photos and the temple was worth visiting. But mentainence is required. We did a round boating around temple for about 1 hour and we came back. I wanted to see how the temple was floating..
Must visit ;)

This is a nice little hindu temple. What made him special and famous it is his location. He is on the Phewa-Lake and can only reached by boat. We were there on a weekend and it was very crowded, mostly with local peoples. If you are in Pokhara and you like the culture of Nepal the visit of the lake and this temple belongs to the things you have to do.

You have to take a nice little boat ride to go over there. U can either take an entire small boat or big sharing boats. The temple is small but very nice. Be aware of the boatman, they are always in a hurry and will always tell you the wrong time, so that they can make another trip.

It's worth ticking the box, but the temple is very small and busy. It's fun getting the boat to though in the hustle and bustle. Boat is 100 Rupees for a return.

This is the most important religious monument in Pokhara, Built almost in the middle of Fewa Lake, this two –stories pagoda is dedicated to the boar manifestation of Ajima, the protector’s deity representing the female force Shakti. Devotees can be seen especially on Saturday.
