  • It is a famous religious place & temple of Nepalese. People go there for worshipping goddess Bindhyabasini. There is also a beautiful garden where people meet each other & get happiness from the garden where various kinds of flowers are bloomed ! If you nearby Pokhara don't forget to go Bindhyabasini temple.
  • Important place religiously. Being an agnostic, this place is interesting for me. It has got a great story regarding its origin. The view of the mountains from this place is just amazing. I am hoping for the managing team of the temple to better the cleanliness effort to preserve the beauty of the place.
