Anandadi Lokeshwar Mandir is a temple in Chobar. The temple is dedicated to Anandadi Lokeshwar, one of the four main Bodhisattvas in the Kathmandu Valley who are known as Lokeshwars (this deity is regarded as one of four Matsyendranaths).

The temple was constructed in the 15th century and then reconstructed around 1640. Worshippers visit the time for the well-being of their loved ones and hang utensils on their behalf. 

Local tourists commonly refer to this temple as the "pots and pans" temple.
