Nepalis Ignore COVID-19 Threat as They Visit Pashupatinath Temple in Droves

Nepal extended its movement prohibitory order as COVID-19 infections continue to rise daily in the country. The incumbent government also asked Nepalis to avoid gathering in large numbers.

However, throwing caution to the wind, many Nepalis visited the Pashupatinath Temple and other such temples.

The Hindu month of Shrawan, which falls in July and August, is perceived as an auspicious period for Hindus. They typically worship Lord Shiva and fast during this period.

 

The Hindus visit the temples, and many women end their fast after worshipping Lord Shiva on the last Monday of Shrawan.

However, due to the COVID-19 threat, the local administration imposed rules which barred many devotees from entering the temples and conduct ceremonies outside the temples. As a result, most of the devotees wound up outside the temples in large numbers.

Most of the devotees who were barred from entering the temples wound up worshipping the Shiva Lingas outside.
