BHAGAWAN PASUPATHINATH OF NEPAL
The Seat of Chaturmukha Siva

THE TEMPLE

It is built on the bank of Vangmati and is the haven of religious life of the entire nation. It is a two-storied shrine and resembles of a pagoda type in its external appearance. The roofs are gilded, and its silver plated facade attracts and detains the devotees with its architectural adornments for hours. The dwajasthambha and the entrance are elegantly made and are maintained neatly. The courtyards are vast and the garbha griha is I, built on a higher plane, and surrounded by spacious verandahs with flights of steps on four sides. Many mini-shrines and niches are adorned with several deities of the Hindu pantheon. Next to the temple lies a small pagoda for the Goddess Bachchla or Vatsala, where once human sacrifices were offered on the Sivaratri day. Another deity that attracts attention is Narayana which is housed in the first prakara. It is believed that the whole statue was sculptured in a single night, yet it is a beauty worth seeing. In the second prakara there are hundreds of lingas in rows in an enclosure with adequate space for movement and worship by the devotees.
