Kathmandu: Pashupati Arati

One of the most famous and sacred temple located on the banks of Bagmati river. Unfortunately, entry is limited to Hindus and Buddhists only. Others can look at the main temple from the adjacent bank of the river.

Things to do: Witness Pashupati Bagmati Arati, one of the most mesmerizing rituals in which light from wicks soaked in ghee (purified butter) is offered to God. Pashupati Bagmati Aarati follows three priests conducting the custom with oil lamps, lanterns and other religious elements by chanting sacred mantra. Bhajan (songs with religious theme) are sung by devotees during the Aarati, creating a blissful surrounding. The Aarati starts at 6 pm every evening.
