About Jagan Narayan TempleIf there’s one thing that Nepal is famous for (apart from mountains of course), it is the temples. One of the major temples in the region is Jagan Narayan Temple, which honors Lord Vishnu, the Hindu god of protection and maintenance. The lord, who is also known as Hari is practiced and revered in this temple.
Highlights: This is a tall, imposing temple that has been built in the 17thcentury. The temple is pagoda style, with Shikhara construction, wherein rising towers are built through the temple to make it appear like a mountain peak. The style is heavily detailed to add sophistication and to reflect the carvings from a bygone era. The highly ornate construction has progressively smaller storeys of pavilion. This temple in particular is very calming, spiritual and religious place. The site is perfect for exploring Hinduism and the culture.
Location: Patan, Nepal.
