This temple will not take you more than five minuttes to see. However, it is quite interesting to notice the many tantric carvings in the outiside wooding structure.

Accessed through a small doorway (well signed) from Lalita Ghat, this is a small temple with wooden features in quite a di8fferent style to others in the area. Well worth a look. R20- entry fee.

This is quite a nice, well maintained temple on the ghat. Pretty Nepali architecture, a temple in a tiny courtyard is worth stopping by.

This old beautiful temple is located on the Lalita Ghat (near Manikarnika Ghat). This temple is built in Nepali style. Excellent architecture. Temple is built with stone and wood. The temple is beautiful and serene environment to meditation and prayers. The temple resembles with the Pashupatinath Temple of Nepal. Spectacular carvings. During visit to Varanasi worth visiting.

Really cool temple with monkeys running about. The Kama sutra wall panels gave me pause for consideration and then a fear of back pain but all in all this was a great stop on my tour of Varanasi

Built in Nepal style architecture using mortar and wood, this is a beautiful temple that shouldn't be missed. Walk around and peek a the living quarters behind the temple.
