Clustered People In Pashupatinath

Clustered people

Many people stood on the riverside

Shot at Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The Pashupatinath Temple is the largest Hindu temple in Nepal. Yet it was prohibited to enter to non-Hindu. So I hung out on the river bank of the Bagmati River and watched the opposite side of the river where a crematorium was built. A funeral was performed there.

Both on the stone bridge and the river bank, people clustered. A coffin was in the midst of the crowd. And it was carried to the crematorium by bereaved relatives. And people were watching it. After cremation, ashes of the deceased was scattered into the holy river.
