Day 108 – Kathmandu, Nepal (Pashupati and Boudha)

We continued to explore Nepal’s rich culture today by visiting the Pashupati Area, a place of prayer and worship for Hindus and Buddhists (a marvelous example of religious harmony). During our visit to this UNESCO site, which is situated near the Bagmati River, we caught glimpses of Hindu funeral rituals such as cremation. After admiring the many ancient temples and monuments, we departed the Pashupati Area and headed to The Great Stupa of Boudhanath. Boudhanath Stupa is a pilgrimage site of utmost importance to Buddhists (it is also deemed A World Heritage Site by UNESCO).

    How heavy do you suppose the sack of whatever is that the guy is carrying on his head? I’d have a real headache!

    • LOL… Ryan does make friends easily🙂

      The guy was carrying what looked like a sack of dried branches… I think it weighed quite a bit judging from how slow he was progressing…
