Had been to Pashupatinath in 2014 and 2016 ! It's awesome ! And great architecture ! Here funerals are carried out everyday .. You can just sit and watch funerals in a respectful way .. Get a guide if you want information about culture , religion etc :)

Visiting Pashupatinath is like nothing I have ever experienced in my life. It is a holy place, where Hindu cremations are occurring daily. We went on a Monday evening, and many families were there to take place in the funeral rites of their loved ones. It was incredible to observe these rituals in a respectful way.
