The pagodas of the Pashupatinath Temple line the shores of the Bagmati River in Kathmandu Nepal. The Bagmati is to Kathmandu what the Ganges in Varanasi is to India - the most active and holy river for cremations. Funeral pyres burn on cremation ghats just south of the temple.
Pashupatinath is devoted to Lord Shiva and the most significant Hindu temple in Nepal. You’ll see plenty of religious pilgrims, including sadhus, holy men or ascetics, from India. Non-Hindus are not allowed inside but there is an excellent view of it across the river up on a hill. Keep your eye on the aggressive thieving monkeys who all but own this hillside. They have no problem grabbing camera lenses pointed at them or scrambling to snatch dropped sunglasses.
