Glimpses and Reflections of Pashupatinath

I swear I am not a religious person by heart but Shutterbug I have inside compels me to visit the Pashupatinath once in a while to click pictures. And this time it was to assist a friend mine who recently had week long photography training and very keen to seed photographer’s eyes. Let me take this pleasure sharing you some ‘Glimpses and Reflection’ that I was able to capture.

Along the shores of the Bagmati river near the temple lies “Aarya Ghat”, the most widely used place of cremation.

Pashupatinath is the biggest Hindu temple of Lord Shiva in the world temple. This temple is located on the banks of the Bagmati River in the eastern part of Kathmandu and people especially Hindu devotees consider it as grate fortune as well as bliss being able to visit the temple to offer pujas and payers but in contrary I dwell no such sentiment. Visiting Pashupatinath for me is to flashback those members of my families and friends I bid farewell with a wrenched heart.
