Our guide took us to this temple on our way to Sarangkot. What a treat! This is the oldest Hindu temple in Pokhara. It is quite beautiful and the grounds are large so it does not feel crowded. If you are lucky, you may see a wedding party like we did! Worth a visit.

this place is worth the climb. Several temples in an open space overlooking the city. Very interesting Hindu temple that was open to visitors of all faiths.

The Bindhya-Basini Temple is located high on a hilltop at the outskirts of Pokhara. This temple complex is small in size. I have read that this Temple is still being used for worship by both the Hindu and Buddhist followers in the area. This Temple location is also popular with the tourists, apparently for the scenery - mountain view and Pokhara city skyline. However, in my opinion, I believe that the scenery at the Peace Pagoda was even nicer for photography with clearer views of the area mountains and Pokhara city skyline.

One can not imagine having gone to Pokhara and not gone to this place, Bindhya Basini Temple. This is both from religious point of view as well as the beauty of snow laden mountains. The temple provides a unique spot for photography. Temple is utterly clean and one can enjoy the darshan in the serene atmosphere. From a specially provided spot for photography one can take photos of snow mountains of Annapurna range to heart' content. Early morning these mountain provide a special effect of sun's rays.

We went here in the morning. Many local people came with offerings, to show their respect. Easy contact with the locals, nice to exchange some personal words. If weather permits stunning view of the Annapurna

This temple on a hillock in Pokhara,is amidst a commercail cente too. A temple dedicated to Durga Devi , in the Sakthi form. Durga Devi is Pokhara's chosen guardian deity. The main deity is worshiped in the Holy Saligram form. A 19th centurey built temple is renovated recently and is provided with a comfortable lift to the convenience of elderly pilgrims.
With a beautiful background of the mountains, we geT a panoramic view of POKHARA, atop a balcony in the outer periphery of the temple complex
A well maintained temple.
