.Pashupatinath Cultural Heritage is a Hindu temple located on the shore of the Bagmati river on the eastern part of Kathmandu. It is regarded as the most sacred temple of Shiva (Pashupati) in Nepal. "Shivaratri" or night of lord Shiva is the most important festival celebrated in this temple. Along the shores of the Bagmati river near the temple lies "Arya Ghat", the most widely used place of cremation for the deceased in Nepal, especially in and around the Kathmandu valley.
.Cremation pyre on the banks of the Bagmati. It is believe that to die and be cremated on the Bagmati River is to be released from the cycles of rebirth. On the other side of the temple, three wedding ceremonies were taking place at that moment when we visited the temple.
