Place: The temple of Pashupatinath  (24 Aug 2017 )

Dressed in bright red clothes, married and single women visit Pashupatinath, the temple of Lord Shiva. Married women pray for all-good of their husbands while single ones wish to find the perfect life-partners. On this particular day, the temple of Pashupatinath and the entire surroundings are off-limits to male visitors.

The women, despite strictly fasting whole day, dance and sing special folklores. Where do they get so much energy? Perhaps from the special feast they managed to have the night before. Think about approaching a medium sized crowd and watching the celebrations from a safe distance.
