Located on the mountain, the Baan Ha Basani Temple is one of the famous attractions. This is a famous temple and the main god is Durga. There are also other gods. We have to climb about 100 steps. There were also many people when we visited there. It is about a 10-minute drive from the old town, and it can also be reached by bus. The temple is on the top of the hill, and you can overlook the city of Pokhara, and you can also clearly see Sarangkot and the paraglider in the sky. This temple is a very famous goddess temple in Pokhara. If you are lucky, you can see new people come here to pray! In addition to the main temple of the goddess, there are also other Hindu gods, such as Shiva, Krishna, and Ganesh.
Bindu Bahini Temple, located on a low hill in the old city of Pokhara, is the most famous temple in the old city of Pokhara. If you come to the old city, remember to visit the temple. Many Hindus, including locals, and Indians come to the temple to worship the Buddha every day. It can be said that the incense is strong, and the temple is also a good viewing platform.
Now it is being renovated. It is a Hindu, so you have to take off your shoes when entering the temple. Non-Hindu believers cannot enter, but I went in after I got slippers. The inside is not big and I can see the panoramic view from the commanding heights.
Walk along the road of the old market until you reach the Bindu Bahini Temple. There are not many steps up, but it is already on the mountain. It seems that the temple has been renovated and it is dazzlingly white in the sun. This is a comprehensive small temple located on the top of a small hill on the north side of the old market. In the main hall of the temple are enshrined the combative goddess Durga (the mother of Ganesha, wife of Shiva), the god of prosperity Vishnu, and the god of black sky, who is especially worshipped by women. This is the earliest temple where Durga was the object of faith. In the center of the temple area is the shrine where the Durga statue is placed. Every morning, ceremonies for slaughtering animals such as chickens and sheep are held in front of it. There are some small shops in front of the climbing stairs, selling various items.
In the urban area, there are relatively large-scale buildings, very distinctive, and the photos taken are beautiful. It's worth going around.
