Few Hours At Pashupatinath Temple

It is said that Nepal’s history and culture lie in its temples. So when I was in Nepal, a visit to Pausnpatinath temple was on top of my list.
Dating back to the 5th century, Pausnpatinath temple is the oldest Hindu temple in the country and is an UNESCO heritage site. Nepal’s national deity – Lord Pashupatinath or Lord Shiva – is worshiped here. Located on the banks of Bagmati river in the eastern part of Kathmandu city, this temple is considered to be a masterpiece of Hindu architecture.
I hired a taxi from Thamel and it took me not more than 10 minutes to reach this iconic temple. The entire temple is beautifully carved with wooden rafters and its roofs are made up of gold and copper plating. I would have loved to scan each and every detail minutely but there was some festival going on. The temple was full of colorful devotees and a lot of rituals were being performed. It was perhaps not the best day to see the majestic grandeur of this temple, but it still was a wonderful experience!

Temples Of Bali

There goes without saying that Indonesia is famous for its magnificent beaches, which beckons millions of tourists every year. However, one simply can’t ignore their hundreds of impressive temples. Be it Pura Taman Saraswati or Uluwatu Temple. Their exquisite architectures will leave you awe-struck. My joy for discovering prominent Hindu temples in Bali was an exhilarating experience.

Every temple has a history to tell. Observe them deeply and you will experience spirituality awakening inside you. I have clicked hundreds of images of the famous temples, which might entice you take a trip to Indonesia.
But before visiting a temple, there are certain rules one should keep in mind. Respect the deities and don’t touch them. Dress properly. Yes, it is mandatory. If you forget to dress properly, many temples also offer clothes with which you can cover yourself.
