One of the key Hindu festivals, Maha Shivaratri is dedicated to
Lord Shiva and in Nepal is celebrated at the Pashupati Temple just
outside Kathmandu. The passion of the devotees ensures a moving and
spectacular experience as people cover their bodies in ashes and
pray until they fall into a trancelike state. Prayers and
ceremonies will take place deep into the night.
Event Date: 20 February 2012 Event Time: All day Venue: Pashupati temple complex, 2.5 miles (4km) east of
