Boudhanath and Pashupatinath, Nepal

The first view of boudhnath

Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

Sharing a lot of picture with you from our visit to Boudhanath and Pashupatinath Temple today. Both places are a must visit if you are coming to Kathmandu, Nepal. Boudhanth was one-of-its-kind experience. The undeniable faith among the people, the gorgeous statues, the humming prayers, and you being a part of all this; it was as if you have been transferred to a different world altogether.

Clicking photos inside Pashupatinath temple was not allowed so we could not click those photos. I was stunned by the larger than life statues, bells and keen golden details inside the temple. I just felt that they should keep the place a little cleaner.

I hope you enjoy this the trip through Sanjeev’s eyes. πŸ™‚

Btw, thank you for all the lovely suggestions on must see places in Kathmandu. We are totally reading them and trying to check them out in our limited time here. Talk to you soon. *hugs*

  4. Sanjeev Da, What a marvelous story teller are you. You have an eye for detail. You read thru the words unspoken. I would agree with Shreya, what a journey it was, what a journey man ! my wanderlust howls:(

    Given a chance would really love to meet you and Rati someday. Amazing camera job ! you its great seeing someone following their work with so much passion, you two make me feel so positive.

    • Rati says:

      thank you esha. yeah try pink pen. Their first question would be ‘oh why have you used a red pen. then you’d want to say ,it’s pink’. loll!!! Sanjeev has done some outstanding photography. even though I have been to the place myself i have scrolled up and down the pics so many times myself. πŸ˜›

      *love and hugs* ))

  6. priyanka s says:

    ur really good photographer…emotions captured well…
    i would like to mention one thing for this post is, Sanjeevji you are looking smart and super cool…i liked your outfit…n see ur so fit…:)
    rati, u also look good but i will say on todays post sanjeevji was the hero πŸ™‚

  7. Nidhi R says:

    First of all Kudos to Sanjeevji for the awesome pics. Every pic has a story to tell and no one else could have done justice to the place than him. He’s captured the beauty in a magnificent way. Hats off sir. And Rati you are looking wonderful in every pic. All those expressions are clearly visible and the one with the pigeons is just awww.
    Finally a few pics of the man himself.
    Boudhanath happens to be my favourite too. Always visit once on my trip back home. Agree Pashupatinath could be a bit cleaner. I am going to bookmark this entire trip of yours for life. For me its a gift of unforgettable memories in the form of pictures. Now I have somewhere to see when I am feeling homesick. Gettin emotional;). Looking fwd to more pics and oh I think that guy was selling some one string musical instrument or what.. and forgot about the black and white pic its breathtaking the flight..

  8. Nidhi R says:

    I forgot to mention that your canary yellow nailpaint matched with the temple surroundings too. It reminded me of ‘ All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful the Lord God made them all’. Apt for these lovely pictures

    • Rati says:

      awww nidhi thanks a ton. I think nepal is one of the nicest place we have been to. People make the place so special. Glad you liked the pics. :)) The pigeons was quite an experience. It was something that would stay in my heart always. :))

  9. Anushree says:

    WOW that was so divine. Sanjeevji you can give any professional photographer a run for his money. The photos are always eye-pleasing. Rati you are looking stunning as always πŸ™‚ You are my Style Icon, there’s a lot to learn from you.

  13. aru says:

    hiya boy and girl! you guys have put some amazing pics up there. I love religious places more for their location than anything else. You will usually find them atop hills, next to rivers and all. My favourite pics are that of the sweet old man who has all the style and the little girl who is feeding the pigeons. They just look so content in life somehow..

  14. Shikha says:

    hahahha.. last pic is cute.. and expression face of Rati while feeding pigeons is beautifully captured
