Kailash, the dwelling place of Lord Shiva, and housed famous temples Pashupatinath, Muktinath, Damodar Kund, Gosaikunda, Budanilakantha Temple, Chagunarayan Temples and hundreds of other Hindu pilgrimage sites. Nepal is land of god and goddess, the mythical creatures and signifies the great sense of spiritual solace. Not only the people who believes in Hinduism but the non-Hindu people also comes to Nepal to observe the splendid art and architecture, cultures, feast and festival as well as the religious life of Nepalese people, that is peaceful and nonviolent.
Nepal a holy place in the sense that, The Brahma (the creator), The Vishnu (preserver) and The Shiva (Destroyer) had been here and meditated. So Nepal has various temples and spots that carry the mythical stories that are mentioned in Hindu scriptures and holy books. The great war of Mahabharata and Ramayana had taken place in Nepal also. The birth place of God and Goddess, Nepal still preserves pure Hindu culture. Nepal is only country where more than 80% people are Hindus and was the one and only Hindu country in the world before 2008.
Nepal has unique Hindu Culture that is mainly based on Indo-Aryan legacy but Tibeto- Burman People also adopted the same religion in the course of time. So that, some of the temple likes Boudhhanath, Swayambhunath and Muktinath are worshipped by both Hindus and Buddhists also. So, Nepal has been good example for religious tolerance, peace, religious secularism since time immemorial.
