Gaurighat is an ancient Nepalese village at the Bank of Bagmati river in the Kathmandu Valley. Now a part of the Kathmandu metropolitan area, Gaurighat is located in the northern side of the famous Pashupatinath temple. Gaurighat is also famous for the temples of Goddess Parvati and Kiranteswar Mahadev, the Kirant incarnation of Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva is considered the principal deity of Nepalese Hindu cult. The shrine of Gaurighat consists of a Hanuman statue, a Ganesh statue and the most important of all - a statue of Goddess Parvati. The temple dedicated to Parvati is called the Guhyeshwari Temple.
