Pashupati Temple... Deopatan Nepal

The temple of Pashupatinath, or Pashupati, is located in Deopatan, a little town 3 km northwest of Kathmandu. It is a Hindu temple, dedicated to a manifestation of Shiva called Pashupati (Lord of Animals). It attracts thousands of pilgrims each year and has become well known far beyond the Kathmandu Valley.

The temple is barred to non-Hindus, but I had a good view of the temple compound's inner courtyard from Shleshmantak hill on the opposite (eastern) bank of the Bagmati river
