Pasupathinath temple is a famous and sacred Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva (called Pasupathinath). It is not known for certain when this Temple was built. But according to legends, the Temple’s existence dates back to 400 B.C. The visit to the temples will be followed by a Havan (fire ceremony) to burn all negativities and hindrances to evolution.
