Pashupatinath represents Lord Shiva, the God of Gods, belonging to the Hindu religion. This temple is one of the Holiest in the world, revered and worshipped by both Hindus and Buddhists. It represents a phallic idol, with five images carved on its five sides. In the sanctum of the temple stands a Jyothirlinga (Radiant Sign of The Almighty Shiva). At the Pashupatinath, alongside the Bagmati River, bodies are cremated. One can see many devotees and Sadhus (wandering Holy Men). In addition, many playful monkeys about. Combine a visit to Pashupatinath with one to Boudhanath.
