The underlying tenets of Hinduism cannot be easily defined. There is no unique philosophy that forms the basis of the faith of the majority of Nepali’s population. Hinduism is perhaps the only religious tradition that is so diversified in its theoretical premises and practical expressions as to be called a “museum of religions”. This religion cannot be traced to a specific founder nor does it have a “holy book” as a basic scriptural guide. Rig Veda, Upanishads and Bhagwad Gita can all be described as the sacred text of the Hindus. Unlike most other religions, Hinduism does not advocate the worship of one particular deity. One may worship Shiva or Vishnu or Rama or Krishna or some other gods and goddesses or one may believe in the ‘Supreme Spirit’ or the ‘Indestructible Soul’ within each individual and still be called a good Hindu. This gives an indication of the kind of contrasts this religion is marked by. At one end of the scale, it is an exploration of the ‘Ultimate Reality’; at the other end there are cults that worship spirits, trees and animals. There are a lot of Hindu pilgrimage sites in the country.
Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal in both political and cultural aspect. It is named after the Kastamandap temple present in the heart of the city. Kathmandu valley includes two other districts of Nepal namely Lalitpur and Bhaktapur. These three districts were once separate small kingdom before they were conquered by Prithivi Narayan Shah during his unification campaign of Nepal.
