Temples, shrines, monuments and Monasteries are extremely active with devotees burning butter-lamps, singing hymns, chiming temple bells and playing drums. The spiritual aspect of life is of immense importance to all Nepalese. Religious rites, ceremonies and festivals provide not only colour and excitement.
