Trip Planner: Asia / Nepal / Central Region / Bagmati Zone / Kathmandu Valley / Kathmandu / The Crematoria
Learn about Hindu funereal traditions during a visit to The Crematoria, the riverside cremation area of a famous Hindu temple. The traditional ceremony sees the family of the deceased build a funeral pyre next to the river, sprinkle it with holy water, and circle the body three times, walking counter-clockwise. The area is only open to those of Hindu faith. Other visitors can see the cremation area from the opposite bank of the river. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Kathmandu holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the The Crematoria and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
