This White domed Hindu temple is surrounded by several other small Hindu temples. It would be helpful if someone there explains the religious significance of the various sites. One is able to take interesting photographs of the surrounding area from this location.

I went with the family at about 6:45 PM on the day before Navaratri. At the time of visit Arati was going on and there were different kinds of Arati being done by three Pujaris. It was exquisite to watch. Not to be missed.

There's Lord Siva, Lord Rama, and other God idols in addition to the Goddess Vindhya Vasini (Parvati Devi) in the temple. A unique aspect of the temple is that it has idols of the Chiranjeevis (immortals) as laid out in the Hindu mythology.

This is on top of the very small hill. It is believed as one of the oldest temples in Pokhara Valley. Can be seen Wedding ceremonies taking place in the wedding season most of the time.
