Photograph of the Nepalese temple at Lalita Ghat, Varanasi from the Kitchener of Khartoum Collection: 'Views of Benares. Presented by the Maharaja of Benares' by Mahdao Prasad, c.1905. View from the river, towards Lalita Ghat at Varanasi crowded with small boats, the tower of the Nepalese temple is visible in the left background. The temple was built at the behest of the King of Nepal in the typical Kathmandu style using wood and woodcarvers brought from Nepal. The temple houses an image of Pashupateshwar which is a manifestation of Lord Shiva at Pashupatinath in the Kathmandu Valley.
