About Pashupatinath Temple
Pashupatinath Temple, enlisted as the UNESCO world heritage site is situated by the bank of river Bagmati. Also regarded as one of the most holiest and major Hindu temples in the world, it attracts thousands of people each year. Unlike these reasons, Pashupatinath temple attracts me with its multiplicity and contrasts; which easily captivates with live display of despair and happiness. People are seen wishing for the betterment of existent life and in the other side of Pashupatinath, people escaping the physical world at the same time.
As previously mentioned in the post: Life in Love as well, how can I miss the exhilarating experience of soulful musical Aarati during the evening. I am not sure what exactly is the force that magnetizes and craves me to go to Pashupati frequently; people, aarati, environment or some kind of energy which automatically drives there but it has been my regular hub for last 3 years or so.
In this post, I have attempted to connect my emotional attachment of Pashupatinath with photographs.
And this time, I have clicked the pictures of monkeys more than that of human and temples because I tried to capture emotional state of monkeys to compare with that of Human.
At the end of the day, it was really an interesting experience spending time with monkeys.
