The claim is False.
We performed a Google reverse Image Search, which directed us to a Facebook page 'Mandawa-पारदर्शी शिव मंदिर'. On this Facebook page, we found a news clipping of a local newspaper. It was said that there is a transparent Shivling in a temple in Ward 18 of Mandawa.
We then found a video uploaded on a YouTube channel on 5th December 2020. The description of the video: "Transparent Shivling temple in Mandawa Rajasthan".
We then performed a Keyword search for the Shivling of Pashupatinath Temple in Nepal. We were then directed to a video of ABP News.
It is therefore evident that the claim is False. The image of the transparent Shivling is from Mandawa, Rajasthan.
