Maha Shivaratri Festival

Religious in Around Kathmandu

In the Nepali month of Falgun (in February or March), tens of thousands of pilgrims throng to Pashupatinath from all over Nepal and India to celebrate Shiva’s birthday. It’s an incredible spectacle, and a chance to see members of some of the more austere Shaivite sects performing rituals through the night.
