Religious places of Nepal for Tourism Industry

 Pashupatinath
    The greatest holy place of the Hindu people specially residing in Nepal and India is the great Pashupatinath. It is located in the center of the Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. It is not only the great pilgrim but also a world heritage. Pashupatinath is the name given for lord Shiva. It is the place where millions of Hindu people worship lord Shiva and they pray god for their good future. The place occupies a small Bagmati river, which is also of religious value. There is belief that if any person takes bath in the river, then his/her sin will be gone and the person after death will go to heaven.
    The place consists of many pilgrims, temples, statues, Shiva-Linga and many other historical and religious things. The place is suitable for research on religious things and a good place to visit by a tourist. It is one of the finest places for meditation and any person cannot get more on Hindu society more than from here. The temple is always full of visitors and the devotees are bare footed on the queue to worship lord Shiva. The different Rishi Muni and different swami meditate here to get knowledge and get divine power. Sadhus, Swamis, priests almost all the time pray to god here and put Tika, and give blessings to the visitors.
    The name Pashupati means pashu=cattle & pati= god i.e. cattle’s god. It was named so because a long time ago an oxen or Gai(cow, national animal of Nepal) used to deliver milk only in that place where pasupati lies at present. The place was then a shed, the people got surprised of that, they dug, and finally they found a big statue of lord Shiva. Therefore, for the occasion the cattle found the statue of lord Shiva. Hence, god is named as Pashupatinath and the place as Pashupati.
    Pasupati is a beautiful area covering different temples and stupas(statues). However, the main temple of Pashupatinath is located at the center of the area. It has golden roof and four silver doors at four directions i.e. north, east, south & west. The main occasion like Shiva Ratri, Teej, each Monday of the month Srawan (July & Aug), etc. makes pasupati full with millions of visitors. The people celebrate these occasions very wonderfully. At this period, the pasupati seems like a new broom that is in her wedding dress.
    Millions of people visit pasupati each day for worship, meditation, to perform religious ceremonies. Thousands of people for their personal talks also visit this place; they visit for morning walk too. Since, Nepal is a Hindu kingdom and more than 80% people are Hindu so thousands of people from the same country go to visit it. Hindu culture and tradition seems true here. Therefore, it is your time to visit here. Do not miss your chance. Get a ticket and visit it as soon as possible.
    May Lord Pashupatinath keep you & your family safe and healthy? God bless you!
