Entirely made of stone, this shikhara-style structure with 21 pinnacles is dedicated to Lord Krishna, a savior deity in Hindu pantheon, and is equally noted for rare stone carvings on its walls, which depict various episodes of the epic wars of Ramayana and Mahabharata. Other landmarks within the Square are Tusha-hity (water spout), Sundari Chowk, Taleju Temple and the Keshav Narayan Chowk.

Similar with one that is held same on the bank of holy Ganga river in Varanasi, India. It quite resembles for what people have their on its values, gathering in holy river banks for burning holy flames in those sacred places exhibit hope of all well wishes. The Aarati in Pashupatinath is offered to all the Hindus gods and goddess, especially to holy River Bagmati, Pashupatinath (Lord shiva) and Parbati (Shiva’s consort). The ceremony lasts as long about an hour following the tradition and customs of Hinduism. It is divided into two parts – lights and music where visitors can also hum with locals and dance with Sadhus. The Aarati is worth watching during your traveling Nepal. The Aarati starts with worship to the Panchayan deities – Shiva, Vishnu, Durga, Surya and Ganesh – with coal incense that is burn with vegetable oil and different kind of woods. Right after the ritual worship, three large structures with fifty four diyo (small oil-lamp) are rise to the Lord Shive. First the priests dip the lights four times on the bottom; circle it seven times on the top in perfectly synchronized motions. Hindus believe that lights are liked by gods and a prayer is incomplete without burning diyo.
