Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s entry into the guest book at Pashupatinath Temple during his visit in August 2014:
The Pashupatinath Temple located on the banks of Bagmati is the centre of our faith. It is written in the Himwat Khanda of Skanda Puran that Pashupatinath and Kashi Bishwanath are one and the same. Coming here on this day, I feel extremely emotional. I hope that the blessings of Pashupatinath, which connects both Nepal and India, will be bestowed on the people of both countries.
