Best time:
Pashupatinath temple is open for visit all time in year. But there is lot of crowd during Mahashivaratri and Teej festival in which people worship lord Shiva.This is most crowded seasons to visit. If you love crowd,long queue,rush and lot of religious events then this is the best time to come. If you want to visit in less rush and with comfortable you can visit anytime throughout year.
Accommodation:
It's better not to spend nights in the hotels around Pashupatinath as you can easily reach to hotels within kathmandu .
Transportation:
It's quite a long walk to Pashupatinath from Kathmandu city center. I'd really only advise it is there is a strike on and there's no traffic around. Otherwise it can be a dirty dusty trip. A better option would be to walk from Pashupatinath to Boudhanath which is very close (20 mins) and then take a taxi or bus back.
By bus/taxi: It's about 15 minutes from Thamel in non-rush hour. Taxi's will try to overcharge, set the price before getting in with a friendly bargain.
Description:
Pashupatinath is more than just a religious destination. It is a combination of religion, art, and culture. It offers peace and devotion. The temple, spread across 246 hectors wide, is abundant with temples and monuments. Hundreds of rituals are performed here every day. The temple premises is an open museum. This national pride is listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site since 1979. 
This temple is an important destination for art historians. It displays a variety of styles of temples some of which are Dome style, Pagoda style, Shikhara style and so on. Additionally, variety in statues and sculptures can also be seen. There are statues made out of stone, metal, and wood. The door and pillars around the temple area are carved in beautiful shapes of God and griffins. 
Pashupatinath stretches from the main temple of Pashupatinath to Guheshwori. There are many famous temples inside this area including the Bhuwaneshwori, the Dakshinamurti, Tamreshwor, Panchdewal, Bishwarupa, and others. 
The temple of Kali, which is located on the banks of River Bagmati has an interesting appearance and myth. The myth is that the statue grows out of its original spot and that the world will come to an end when the half-in half-out statue is fully out.
Each temple has its own set of rituals to be performed, and every temple has specific value and customs. On the other side of the river is a small forest Shleshmantak, home to animals like deer and monkeys. A traditional crematorium stands on the banks of the River Bagmati. 
Pashupatinath is rich in cultural, forest, and water resources. In order to maintain these resources, Pashupati Area Development Trust (PADT) was founded with the initiative of Late King Birendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev in 1996. Since then, the activities at Pashupati are governed through this administrative body.
