KHATMANDU - THE SEAT OF YAJAMANMURTI

The Pasupathinath Temple

It is the principal shrine and deemed the holiest of holies for the entire Nepali nation. It binds all the Nepalis living all over the globe on one silken bond and proclaims that Saivism is the only state religion, though there are many Buddha stupas in several places, and people in large numbers are adoring the Buddha at them. This sacred shrine is one of the chief rallying points of Hinduism and has elevated the city to be on par with Varanasi -- the alltime pilgrimage centre of mankind. Moreover, it is the focal point of all religious activities; for, both the class and mass congregate here on every important day during the year. The royalty holds this in the highest esteem by visiting regularly and endowing munificently. No true Nepali ever misses visiting to praying to this august Pasupathinath, enshrined in a grand imposing mandir. Every Nepali Hindu -- living in or out of this kingdom, yearns to feast his eyes with this majestic Chaturmuka Pasupathinath -- four faced Maheswar and gets blessed by that Omnicompassionate Lord. And visit periodically, if living elsewhere. Thousands of Indians visit this sacred shrine during the year, and for the holy Mahasivaratri festival, devotees from four corners of the world throng and absorb themselves in several spiritual activities converting .the temple complex into Bhukailas. And its very memory raises hands in devout prayers to the Lord Maheswar called her as Pasupathinath.
