The pashupati Nath temple is simply amazing. The minute you enter inside you feel very peaceful. Best sight is a few monkeys sometimes.

Only by contemplating death can we appreciate life (a personal view). Being able to watch some of the actions leading up to the cremations on site certainly made me think about life and death. It could feel voyeuristic to watch the burning of bodies but...More
