This is a pagoda style Hindu temple made by bronze that has four doors in four directions. On the top of the temple, there is golden pinnacle with gold-glided ruff. The temple is decorated with valuable ornaments.

There is no record when the temple was first built. According to Hindu text, the existence of this temple was also in second century which was renovated many times. The present temple was built in 17th century. Pashupatinath temple has been listed in the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.

Behind the temple there are many cremation grounds called “Aryaghat”at the bank of Bagmati River. Most of the Hindu people want to be cremated in this place after their death.
