The typical feature of this wood is that even the termites do not eat this timber. Workers caring for this temple were brought from Nepal. Nandi is a statue of the bull outside the sanctum and inside the sanctum is a Shivling of Pashupatinath Mahadeva. The Nepali temple in Varanasi is one of the most unique places in the city, arguably made entirely of unique places. There is evidence to suggest that the property was actually transferred by the ruler of Varnashi - then in 1843 Nepalese King was called Kashi. And the temple is a replica of the famous Pashupatinath temple in Kathmandu. From the temple platform, and we had a unique perspective of the life-long city life: Visitors walking on the ghats; A tired pilgrim to relax; An Indian tour group, maybe a family.
