Hindu temples in Kathmandu Valley

Kathmandu has strong roots in Hinduism. Historians and local traditions say that a Hindu sage named "Ne" established himself in the valley of Kathmandu during prehistoric times, and that the word "Nepal" means the place protected ("pala" in Sanskrit) by the sage Ne. He performed religious ceremonies at Teku, the confluence of the Bagmati and Bishnumati rivers. Modern day Kathmandu still shows this strong bond with Hinduism as the valley is scattered with Hindu temples including the famous Pashupathinath temple. This section highlights some of the notable temples.
