Religious tour in Nepal
What is religion ?
Relation of human beings to God or the gods or to whatever they consider sacred or, in some cases, merely supernatural. Archaeological evidence suggests that religious beliefs have existed since the first human communities. They are generally shared by a community, and they express the communal culture and values through myth, doctrine, and ritual. Worship is probably the most basic element of religion, but moral conduct, right belief, and participation in religious institutions also constitute elements of the religious life. Religions attempt to answer basic questions intrinsic to the human condition (Why do we suffer? Why is there evil in the world? What happens to us when we die?) through the relationship to the sacred or supernatural or (e.g., in the case of Buddhism) through perception of the true nature of reality. Broadly speaking, some religions (e.g., Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) are outwardly focused, and others (e.g., Jainism, Buddhism) are inwardly focused.

Muktinath is a pilgrimage centre for Buddhists and Hindus. You'll see Tibetan traders as well as sadhus from the far south of India . The shrines in a grove of trees include a Buddhist gompa and a Vishnu temple of Jiwala Mayi . An old temple nearby shelters a spring and natural gas jets which provide Muktinath's famous eternal flame.

One of Nepal's most famous religious places of pilgrimage is Gosainkunda lake situated at an altitude of about 4360 meters.The lake town is surrounded by high mountains to the north and east and the lake itself is worth the trip alone for its beauty and picturesque surroundings.
There are nine other famous lakes in the area such as Saraswati, Bhairav, Sourya and Ganesh Kunda. Every year during the Janai Purnima festival in August, thousands of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims travel here by foot to take a holy dip in the lake.Another site to see when traveling to Gosaikunda, besides its glacial lake, is the large rock in the center of the lake. It is said to be the remains of an ancient Shiva shrine. There is a myth that claims the lake is carried by a channel that stretches all the way from Gosaikunda in the Langtang Region to the holy pond 60 kilometers to the south at the Kumbheshwar Temple in Kathmandu's city of Patan.
