Everest Calling - Kathmandu - Pashupatinath temple

In the evening, we visited the Pashupatinath temple.
Cameras were strictly not allowed. I took a few pictures from the outside.

It is not one temple but a temple complex and it is huge. There are many shrines, many ‘gopuras’ or rather, pagodas that make a much prettier picture from a distance than from inside the complex. Also from the distance, one is not aware of the crowds of people inside it nor of the squalidness that characterize all popular pilgrim centres.
