Nerd’s Eye View : Pashupatinath, Nepal

At first glance, Pashupatinath might not look that sacred… The temple is just a few hundred metres from the end of the runway at Tribhuvan Airport, overlooking a particularly polluted stretch of the Bagmati. However, in religious terms this is a powerhouse of Hindu spiritual energy, and is closely connected to Shiva in the form of Pashupati, the Lord of Animals.

This extensive Hindu temple precinct is a sprawling collection of temples, ashrams, images and inscriptions raised over the centuries along the banks of the sacred Bagmati river and is included as one of the seven monument groups in UNESCO’s designation of Kathmandu Valley as a cultural heritage site.

Some surrounding minor shrines were damaged in the 2015 earthquake, but the main temple was unscathed.
