An unforgettable place (fear not to enter) is a burnt-corpse temple that allows visitors to watch. As the name implies, "crematorium" is only open to the public. Death is not terrible for Hindus. Death is just the beginning of reincarnation, so that the dead can enter heaven. Standing on the other side and watching them ignite, I heard the cry of family members coming from the other side, moments of inexplicable sadness, tears flowing down and turning to take the paper towel. At that moment, I saw the eyes of several foreign tourists around me were wet, the scene was very grinding, the sky was fluttering with soot, occasionally the call of crows, one of them broke my dream and looked in the direction of monkeys. Not far below the river, I was surprised to see a few children playing happily in the water. It was hard to imagine how bad the water was. (Ashes and unburned bodies were scattered into the river along with the river.) One side was the end of life, the other side was the children playing happily in the water. This represented the beginning of life. Walking towards the river, they saw several juvenile plates on the bank. The driver also comforted me when he went to the next scenic spot with his face brushed. He often saw a lot of people go in and watch happily and come out looking like this. He also said that there was nothing to be afraid of! Oh, I just wanted to say that I was not frightened, but full of emotion.
The Paspatina Temple is located on the Bank of the Bagmati River, known as the Holy River. It is the largest Hindu temple in Nepal and one of the four Shiva temples in South Asia. We are not Hindus and cannot enter the temple. This place also has a name, called Burning the Dead Temple, which is actually an open-air crematorium. After burning, ash is scattered into the river and goes along the river to the place where life is reincarnated. The main temple is only accessible to Hindus, and people of different ranks outside are still burning in different places. Then there are corpses on the other side of the main temple, old and sick, across the river. Here are some white pagodas, which are a symbol of good sexual life in Nepal. They say that the two sides of the river are life and death, and they are deceived like entrance tickets. Someone who has bought the tickets will take you inside with your tickets. Let me introduce you to you. I think it's the ticket with the guide. Then the key is to specify where you are going, take you out after the tour, don't let you go, and then start asking you for money.
The Paspatina Temple, also known as the Burning Body Temple, is located on the West Bank of the Bagmati River, about 5 kilometers east of Tamil District. It was founded in 1696 and is the largest Hindu temple in Nepal. It is also one of the four major temples dedicated to Shiva in South Asia. It has been listed in the World Cultural Heritage List. For thousands of years, Nepalese bodies have been burned here, which is the highest honor. I am fortunate to have seen the whole process of burning the corpse. Three corpses were parked by the river that day. The relatives of the deceased washed and changed their clothes for their relatives. Then they threw the changed clothes into the river and carried them to the burning platform. At that time, the platform had been washed with butter and the firewood was put on the burning platform. People put the deceased on the burning platform firewood and started burning. The whole process took several hours. After that, the ashes were swept through the river. It is said that the river is a sacred river and will bless future generations.
Paspatina Temple is one of the most important temples in Hinduism. The temple has a three-storey roof and is surrounded by some painted yellow and white buildings. Hindus are only allowed to enter the temple, and visitors can only stand in the doorway and watch curiously. The entrance to Paspatina Temple is a whole row of shops and stalls. Most of the items sold here are Hindu flowers and various colors of Tika powder. This is where Hindus hold cremations. Hinduism believes that the soul can be freed from the body by burning the body after death and throwing ashes into the river. There are six stone platforms. The two platforms upstream are exclusive for royalty or nobility. The four platforms downstream are crematoria for the common people. Nepalese cremation ceremony is very simple. When the body is cremated, the eldest son of the deceased shaves his head and goes into the river to clean himself. After a simple ceremony, he wraps it in white cloth and burns it on a shelf made of four logs on a platform close to the river. After three hours, the ashes are pushed into the River and die with the water. When Nepal held cremation ceremonies, there was no ban on tourists taking photos. Most of the tourists were standing on bridges or sitting across the river to watch.
Its very nice and important temple for Hindus where you will can see lots of people wearing traditional dresses and perfoming Pooja.
Make sure you wear a mask when you come. When we arrived, we were preparing for the corpse burning ceremony. There was a cremating body on the altar in front of us, so we finished the whole ceremony. It's very meaningful to come here and experience the local culture.
it is very good service and nice provided with service in the sky.
Nepal Gaddu Paspatina Temple, built in the 19th century, is the most important Hindu temple in Gaddu and the place where believers are cremated. We invited an uncle to give us an explanation. Uncle tells us that they don't believe in the reincarnation of heaven. Happiness in this life is heaven; death is another life. It seems reasonable.
Paspatina is the famous burning temple. Hinduism believes that ashes will rise when they are cremated after death. The River in Kathmandu will eventually flow into the Ganges, where the decontamination and cremation of the bodies will take place. Since the mouth is the source of good and evil, cremation begins with the mouth. I was shocked to see Hindu cremation for the first time.
i just feel peace by heart when i visit this temple.... Every time when i visit Nepal i surely go to this temple with my family or friends....
