Flight to Kathmandu.
The second half of the day will be dedicated to a visit to the main Hindu temple of Nepal — Pashupatinat, dedicated to Shiva and located on the banks of the sacred Bagmati River. Here we will witness the rituals of ablution and cremation, which are performed on Bagmati almost continuously. Bagmati is water, ashes and flowers: garlands thrown into the river along with dust and remain lying on the surface of the water like a a colored carpet.
Pashupatinat was built at the end of the 17th century, but long before that there were buildings in its place, the importance of which from the point of view of holiness only emphasizes that this place for the temple was not chosen by chance and has a prehistory. When Shiva got tired of living on Mount Kailash, he decided to move to the valley of Kathmandu, where he soon gained fame as the Lord of the Animals — Pashupati. Since then, for the past 15 centuries, the habitat of Shiva (on which Pashupatinat now stands) has been the object of pilgrimage and worship of Hindus.
Here we will see the holy hermits (“sadu”) — the followers of Shiva, who have transformed their mortal life into a conscious gradual mortification of the flesh and the development of the spirit.
Leisure time can be used to purchase products of traditional handicrafts, which the Nepalese capital abounds in.
