“Island inside the lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We took a boat from our hotel and headed to the Barahi island in the early morning. The place was full of devotee since there is a very venerated temple in the island. Nice atmosphere and excellent photos of the praying crowds.

“Busy Temple with Dancing Worshippers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

This temple is very busy. There was worshipers dancing, chickens running around loose, dogs sniffing, sleeping and barking. Many tourists there for all over the world. This made for a slightly more unique temple because of the diversity of the people visiting there and the mountain back drops for great photos.

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

The temple is on a small island, in the center of the Phewa Lake. If you approach by individual boat, you can cruise all around and see the shores before you land on it. People throng in the morning for their daily prayers. Fascinating

“Small temple in the middle of Fewa Lake, Pokhara”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

Must try the boating experience at Fewa Lake and hop by at the Barahi Temple. Very small temple but beautifully decorated. Very packed with Hindu devotees on Saturday. Barahi also known as Varahi in Hindu, is one of the mother goddesses. Barahi represent feminine energy.
