Pashupatinath is one of the most holy temples of Shiva in the world, situated on the Bagmati river in the eastern part of Kathmandu. It's listed as a Unesco site, it's the Varanasi of Nepal, a place of cremation, its existence dates back to 400 A.D. The temple is of Nepali pagoda style architecture. Many legends are associated to the area, I'll quote one of them : Shiva and Parvati travelled to the Kathmandu valley and rested by the Bagmati. Shiva was so impressed by its beauty and the surrounding forest that he and Parvati changed themselves into deers and walked into the forest. Since he had lived in a deer's form, he would now be known as Pashupati, lord of all animals. Source : wiki

I know I was here more than 40 years ago but I have strangely few memories of my visit. Actually, this view looks quite unfamiliar to me, but it nevertheless looks like an exciting place. Maybe non-Hindus are not allowed inside the compound and that is why I remember so little. It shoule be interesting to make an excursion here anyway.

This is a beautifully composed and considered scene, so many attractive architectural elements and features all combined here, and all so exotic to my not very well travelled eyes. The steps at the centre foreground are a brilliant inclusion, leading us into the scene and creating an air of mystery and depth. Really nicely done, this is a fascinating shot.
All the best

Not only is Pashupatinath Temple attractive, but also the varying classical architecture surrounding it, including the smaller ornate temples in the foreground. There is a wealth of Nepal design and history within your image.

Roof tops of the town houses and the temple, superbly collected on photo, Miguel.
A "busy" picture space, filled with many attractive elements, in fine clarity, and best light that enhanced the diff. colors.
The many small & colorful turrets and dome is an interesting objects dominating the scene.

Maravillosa imagen, con este conglomerado de edificios y los diferentes templos, sus tejados piramidales en desnivel descentente, dan un bonito toque a la imagen, que tiene un buen DOF con la lejana montaña.
Un bonito color, en estos tonos tan naturales.
También tanto la nitidez, como la iluminación están genial.
Disfruta de un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Informative note of this interesting temple so full of action and people
Good panoramic of the complex managing to show a good mix of teraces , roofs along with the stairs going down to the sacred river
A litle bit tilt to the right may be?
Anyway, having been there, enjoy watching, tfs
