Description

Retaining ancient traditions, Kathmandu is blessed not only by a Living Goddess but also by Tantrik priests and reincarnated Lamas who are revered for their spiritual prowess. The city is enriched by such living traditions and the spectacular religious processions that take to the streets every now and then with throngs of devotees seeking blessings. Being major tourist attractions, these religious festivals are steeped in legend and are quite a manifestation with chariot processions, masked dancers often possessed by the spirits of deities and the inevitable ceremony of sacrifice. Temples are plenty & cows, revered as sacred animals in Nepal, roam free.

Nepal & its culture, from early Sanskrit texts – which is the medium of both ancient Vedas & of the spread of Buddhist teachings in the 3rd century BC – to influences from every age since perhaps came into existence in the 12th to the 16th-century era of the Mallas & their amazingly well-developed civilization. Everywhere centered around the durbar squares of Patan, Kathmandu & Bhaktapur itself are noble structures both royal & religious which highlights the Hindu gods, mainly of Vishnu, Brahma & Shiva with superb artifacts from both Hindu & Buddhist traditions; leaving you in no doubt as to the glories of the past & well informed as to the span of civilizations that have flourished & competed here in the land of the mighty Himalayas.

An example of one such structure is the 30m tall Nyatapola temple of 5 pagoda roof- parapets towering above the markets of Bhaktapur square. Yet its only one centre of things, an iconic landmark while royal palaces, temples & shrines are in constant use, enticing or warding of deities & demons with offerings; typically floral & food with percussion or horn music & always & everywhere the persistent clanging & tinkling of small & big bells which is heard throughout day into the still of the night.
