This is an old complex requiring a good bit of walking. You cannot access the temple but can take photos outside. Guides are available for hire.

Being able to watch families cremate their loved ones was insane. The whole experience was mesmerizing and definitely worth a visit if you're in Kathmandu. Only problem was the beggars but didn't detract from the atmosphere at all.
