Patan: Hari Shankar Temple


The three-storeyed Hari Shankar Mandir was dedicated to the half Vishnu, half Shiva deity. He was built by Yogamati, King Mandir Yoganarendra Math's daughter, and was completed in 1705.
The temple was notable for its roof struts carved with scenes of the tortures of the damned, a strange change from the erotic scenes on the Jagannarayan temple.

It was completely destroyed by the earthquake of April 25, 2015.
