Kathmandu is beautiful and at the same time densely populated. Roads and streets are very much crowded and lot of dust and pollution in the air. However traffic control system is very active and strictly follow no horn guidline.
 
We rented a scooty from Thamel which costed us Rs. 800/- for a day and for security the owner kept our I.D card. And we then started tripping in Kathmandu. The first place we saw was Pashupatinath temple

It is one of the huge complex. In Hindu temples one have to leave shoes outside and at Pashupatinath, they had made a big shoe rack building for it. All shoes to be put in a bag and eople hand them inside, give you a token for it and it's all free service. I liked their system as they are not touching the shoes.
 
And yes there is no parking fee in this area.

Thousands of devotees from all ove the world come here and the place is well maintained , however no photography and only Hindus are allowed to go inside the premesis. Fortunately, Gaurav and I, born in Hindu family and so we saw the temple, the Shivling and I must say here, it is amazing. There are many small temple built around the main building and all have pagoda style architecture.
 
Pashupatinath is dedicated to Lord Shiva and it is belived that he and Goddess parvati spent some here in form of dear near sacred river bagmati and hence Lord Shiva is also known as Pashupatinath - the lord of all Animals.
 
Origin of this temple is not known however it is belived that this temple existance dates back to 400 BC.
 
Dead bodies are also cremated here and devotees do many rituals according to Hindus holy book Vedas. It is also belived that you come here with total trust in Lord Shiva and almighty, He or She will not born again in animal form.
