Closed since January 18 in wake of the third wave of Covid-19 infection, the temple again welcomed devotees adhering to safety protocols and permission from Kathmandu District Administration Office (DAO).

According to the statement issued by Pashupati Area Development Trust earlier this week, the decision to open the temple comes following the order of the District Administration Office, Kathmandu, on February 7.

The DAO stated that “worship, meditation or prayer can be done in places like monasteries, temples, mosques, monasteries and churches by observing public health standards.”
