Kathmandu Tourism: Pashupatinath Burning Ghats

At Pashupatinath, there are always cremations taking place along the Bagmati River. This video shows some of the ceremonies along the river in 2014 before the Kathmandu earthquake. Note the use of marigolds (orange flowers placed on the body before burning). Marigolds also feature heavily in Day of the Dead ceremonies in Mexico.Related Posts:Kathmandu Tourism: John Buys Water at Pashupatinath ...
