Pashupatinath temple is one of the holiest temples in the Hindu religion. Flocks of devotees throng the temple and it is said sins are absolved after a visit. The pujas thaat are conducted here are full of rituals. The temple is adjacent to a river but it has not much scenic beauty.Further only hindus are allowed into the premises.
It is a must however for hindus visiting Nepal.

When you are have different culture and beliefs this place is a bit shock. Our guide well explained the place and crematorium area, I feel lucky that I don't have to see that.

Pashupatinath is one of the biggest Hindus temple in the world. The supreme holiness of the site stems from the Shiva linga enshrined in its main temple. It expresses the very essence of Hinduism as pilgrims, priests, devotes, temples, ashrams, images, inscriptions and cremation ghats intermingle with the rituals of daily life, all sprawled along the banks of the sacred Bagmati River. The temple’s origins are obscure.

Pay round ten euro. U allowed to watch from the other side. Not allowed to cross the bridge to the temple. Can be shocking burning people. I feel like outsider watching private things. But the feeling to experience this is very special. Be respectfull with taking pictures.
