Pashupatinath is located along the banks of the Bagmati River in the eastern part of Kathmandu city, close to the airport. Within the complex is the famous Pashupatinath Temple the oldest hindu temple in Nepal dating back to the 5th century and constructed in the pagoda style of architecture. Non-Hindus cannot enter the main temple, but the surrounding complex of Shaivite shrines, lingams and ghats (stone steps) is fascinating and highly photogenic. Ritual cremations occur daily along the riverside and a can be a sight to behold for those who have not seen hindu cremations before.
