What can be a better start than experiencing a foggy morning in Nepal. Those blurry views and chilly winds, and there stands you exhaling vapors from your mouth. As if childhood had revived at a better place.
And when you find that geyser is not working, it's actually a difficult task to choose between bathing or remaining unbathed. But your hotel manager is a nice person and arranges water. So you opt for bathing.
First and foremost we went to Pashupatinath Temple, which is located in the biggest city as well as capital of Nepal,i.e. Kathmandu. There are two types of Indians that visit Nepal, one for experiencing natural beauty and second for Darshan of this temple only.
Unlike India, temples here have different architecture. The entire campus will give you feel of a red city. For all houses, shops and other things are in shades of red
The temple wasn't much crowded, I clicked a picture too though it wasn't allowed. After Darshan we headed for breakfast which was not different from any indian restaurant. Things are much expensive here as compared to India. A samosa can be priced at Rs. 100 too, I never knew 🤔
Anyway There are so many reasons to love Nepal, it has mountains, jungles, small cities, spiritual sites And friendly people who are cute too.
Nepal is home for 7 among top 10 tallest mountains of the world. You feel Divine the moment you step in the soil of it.
We moved to another stop of Faith the lying Vishnu Temple where there is a large idol of Lord Vishnu floating in water. And it was fun to see little ones counting the donations received.
And our third spot was Buddha garden which had three magnanimous idols touching the sky in shades of golden.
Kathmandu is chaotic, vibrant, historic, haphazard yet nothing can beats the spirituality that it possess. Every temple has its own significance and vibes. Out of 51 Shakti peethas, one is in Nepal where we witnessed a Nepali wedding too, it was simple yet so fascinating with just 7-8 people as guests.
The day was full of spirituality and religious vibes, which ended well in colourful, most lively, market of handicrafts Thamel.
