As it is famous for Hindu pilgrimage, however, this temple is great to see for visitors, located on the bank of Bagamati river. There some crematory on the bank of river where hindus will be cremated after passing away.

Kathmandu is really very dirty and this Temple is not an exception. I was so disappointed to see this Temple was also dirty, smelly and chaotic. It was not a pleasant trip for me.
