Pashupatinath Temple Pashupatinath Temple

Pashupatinath Temple

Pashupatinath Temple is regarded as the world's most sacred temple towards the Hindu god Shiva. Pashupatinath dates back to 400 A.D. and the richly-ornamented pagoda houses hold the sacred linga or phallic symbol of Lord Shiva. This temple attracts thousands of pilgrims each year and has become well known far beyond the Kathmandu Valley due to its astonishing architectural beauty, symbols of faith, religion,culture and traditions. The exact date of Pashupatinath's construction is unknown. Despite this, Pashupatinath is considered to be the oldest Hindu temple in Kathmandu. However, by the late Middle Ages, many imitations of the temple had been built, such as in Bhaktapur (1480), Lalitpur (1566) and Benares (early 19th century). The original temple has been destroyed several times and it was given its present under King Bhupalendra Malla in 1697.Pashupatinath Temple stands in the center of the town of Deopatan, in the middle of an open courtyard. The square, two-tiered pagoda was built on a single-tier plinth, and it stands 23.6 meters above the ground. Richly ornamented gold and silver-plated doors cover each of the sides.Countless smaller temples have been constructed around the main temple on both banks of the Bagmati River during the last few centuries.
