About Nepal

Nepal is located in South Asia, bordered by India and China. It has an area of 147,181 square kilometers and approximately 30 million people. The capital of Nepal is Kathmandu, the largest metropolitan city in the country.

Nepal is known for its religious significance to Hindus and Buddhists. The temple of Pashupatinath in Kathmandu is considered the holiest Hindu temple in the world. Nepal is also the birthplace of Lord Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, making it an important place of pilgrimage for Buddhists.

Nepal has a rich culture, and festivals play an essential role in this culture. These festivals may be related to the memories of the deceased, the changing seasons, the start or end of the agricultural cycle, national events, or family celebrations. Nepalese people take ritual baths on festive days, worship different deities, visit temples, fast, and feast. One of the most notable aspects of Nepali culture is the religious harmony and understanding between Hindus and Buddhists.
