Situated 5 km east of Kathmandu, the Temple of Lord Shiva, Pashupatinath with two tiered golden roof and silver door is considered one of the holiest shrines for Hindus. Although only Hindus are allowed inside the Temple, visitors can clearly see the Temple and the activities performed in the Temple premises from the eastern bank of the Bagmati River. The Temple was listed in the UNESCO World Heritage Monument List in 1979.
