WEEKEND VISIT TO SALINADI TEMPLE, AN ANCIENT TEMPLE

Today I made a visit to Salinadi, a place situated in north east corner of Kathmandu Valley. This place has ancient temple connected with Hindu god and goddess. I thought this place would be quite after our festival of Swasthani has ended. This would be packed with people during this 31 day long festival but I was wrong. I was so shocked to see the crowd especially during this ongoing pandemic. Seems like Hindu people don't give shit to the virus especially when their festival and ritual is their priority. See other photos of the huge crowd.

That small river is the one considered to be sacred. On the last day of 31 long day festival, men and women took a bath here and dressed in new clothes. There is a myth that one

The main reason I came to visit here was the fair market where you get to buy many items in cheap prices. These were the photos from the vendors selling item there in the way.
