Pashupatinath is located on the banks of the Bagmati River in Kathmandu. It is considered one of the most sacred temples of the Hindu faith. The temple serves as the seat of the national deity, Lord Shiva. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. 

Pashupatinath is a sacred place for Hindus to be cremated, and open-air cremation takes place daily. The eldest son of the deceased shaves his head and completes the burial rites. Across the Bagmati river are the Padra Shivalaya (pictured here) which were built to enshrine religious icons built in memory of those cremated at the temple.
