Shiva Festival (Maha Shivaratri) People celebrate Shiva’s birthday in all Shiva temples. The most important place of celebration is the Pashupatinath Temple. Thousands of ascetics gather here. There are ascetic monks in India. Later in Nepal, people will bathe in the holy water of the Bagmati River. The scene is magnificent.
Holi is one of the most famous festivals in Nepal. Just like Songkran in Thailand, people splash water to remind the cool season to come. The difference is that Holi in Nepal also splashes colorful paint on each other. So it is also called the Festival of Colors.
