Very weird and scary place where you see people cremated. I am not into temples but I guess it was weird/interesting to see the cremated process.

So this place is okay, I'll be honest and tell you that I have seen much better temples in my time. Tourists have to pay to get in can't remember how much but Indians and Locals go free. So firstly there appears to be more...More

Really interesting hindu temple. There is always a funeral going on so you can see this side of life as well.

There is a river where they put the dead after burning them. And places for women and men to pray, separately (It's a temple). And those funny and cheerful holy men! And the monkeys are not missing, they are always feeding themselves in the place....More

If you walk here from Boudhanath, you could enter from near the river without any entrance fees. Managed to witness the cremation process which was quite an eye opener.

This is, apparently, a very important location for Hindu people and that was clear today. Nepal New Year was probably not the best day to visit! Very interesting with many holy men on site. Walked through to the deer park and down to the river...More
