The Pashupatinath Temple is dedicated to the Lord Shiva. As the largest and one of the most significant temple structures in Nepal, Pashupatinath draws Shiva devotees from around the world. The temple features a gilded roof along with intricate wood carvings throughout the complex. The temple is located alongside a river where sacred Hindu ceremonies are performed. Visitors can come see Pashupatinath, although some parts of the temple are reserved solely for Hindu worshipers. A spring festival called Maha Shivaratri draws hundreds of thousands of Hindus from Nepal, India, and other neighboring countries.
