Take a left from behind Chyasalin Mandap and walk past the hiti beside it until you see the large two-roofed Pashupatinath temple across the square. This was once regarded as being part of the royal palace.
While the Pashupatinath temple may not look like more than a two-tier wooden building it's got something else going on for itself. Walk up close to it and look up at the wooden struts leading to the first roof. They are filled with erotic wooden carvings.
The carvings here depict scenes that make the karma sutra seem quite amateurish. Included in all these is a water vessel being held under one person. I'm not sure what's going on. But you'll certainly be joined by other onlookers trying to work the same thing out.
