The hometown of Shah Kings of Nepal

After Fewa Lake, if Pokhara is famous for any other sights, then its the Bindhyavasini Temple. It is the center of religious activity in Pokhara and the surroundings. It is dedicated to Goddess Bhagwati, yet another manifestation of Shakti. The park-like grounds offer a fine picnic area, and on Saturdays and Tuesdays when devotees flock there to offer sacrifices take on a festival local flavor.
