The temple complex is best visited when not crowded, or go when a festival is on to get the full on blast of atmosphere. It does not take a lot of time to view.

This temple is in the old part of Pokhara and when I went on a Saturday, was full of worshippers in their flashy, colorful saris. It's place to people watch and see how people pray. I loved the energetic vibe, the long lines of people waiting to enter the temples, and the interesting plaza of small buildings, makeshift shrines. It's... More

It is located on a hill and there are several temples in this area. It is dedicated to the "wish fulfilling" god. It was built in the 17th century. The other nearby temples are of brick and appear more modern....one even had a digital sign on it, which for me, killed the mood! It was a pleasant area to visit... More
