If you believe in femme fatale, Dakshinkali temple is the place to be! The ultimate place of Women power, or lets say Goddess power. They say, man and woman fulfill each other, If you believe in the virtue of supernatural powers then Dakshinkali temple is the place to be! Jai kali!!

Very crowded even on a weekday and long queue, prepare to stand two hours to reach or enter the shrine.
We couldnt see where the sacrifice of the animals done.
Quite a distance from Kathmandu city, about an hour through jungles to reach the place, bad roads.
Kali Matha is so beautiful if you can see her.

This is one which I like the most. It is not for the People having heart problems. They do Scarification of goat, Hen and other animals to the Holy Kali Goddess. Every Saturday devotee of Goddess Kali cut the head of animals and birds and offers her blood of animals and head of animals. It is really cultural sock for western people.

This temple is another must visit place if you are wishing to see how animals are sacrificed in Nepal. Situated a bit far from the main town of Kathmandu but really worth a visit if you are wishing to see how Nepali Hindu people are religiously devoted and how animals are sacrificed. I liked everything except the cruel sacrifice of those innocent animals. It's truly natural, green and pollution free place.
