Cremating A Body

Crematory

Columns of smoke shot up into the air

Shot at Pashupatinath Temple in the eastern part of Kathmandu, Nepal.

Although it is difficult to accept for Christian and Muslim to be cremated their own bodies, it is an ordinary courtesy in Hinduism. And a body was just cremated on the riverbank. Many people familiar with the matter were around the body.
