Not far from Boudhanath, on the banks of the Bagmati River to the east of Kathmandu stands Pashupatinath, Nepal’s holiest Shiva temple. Hindus from across the country converge here during important festivals, when the cremation ghats in front of the shrine are illuminated by hundreds of flickering butter lamps. Dreadlocked sadhus smoking hashish pipes, musicians playing devotional songs, and orange-robed priests performing aarti provide great photo opportunities. Local sadhus also often agree to pose for photographs.
