The Bindabasini temple dedicated to Devi Bhagwati is in the old part of Pokhara bazar. Thousands of worshippers visit the temple on Saturdays and other auspicious days linked to goddesses. The temple is believed to have been constructed prior to Nepal’s unification by king  Siddhi Narayan Shah of the then Kaski state. King Siddhi Narayan is reported to have the temple as a replica of Vindhyanchal’s Bindabasini temple in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
