  KHATMAND - GUSHMESWARI SHRINE

Khatmand, the capital or Nepal, the repository of Nepalese culture and rallying point of every facet of its own distinct life both ancient and modern reflects the tremendous impact of Hinduism and the astounding capacity of assimilation of the cultures, however divergent or distinct they may be in content or spirit. As it is the principal city, pulsating with cultural, commercial, political and spiritual life in its multifarious facets, it stands as a replica of its past glory and present progress. Of the superb structures, the temples, the important land marks top the list and strike the eye first and fill the souls next with scantity by their gigantic shapes, artistic adornments, and hoary traditions. They incidentally mirror the Nepalese religio-social life and the spectacular achievements made over years, taking nourishment from its parent Hindu religion. The very names of shrines, like Swayambhunath, Bodhnath; Pasupathinath etc., or the names of presiding deities make the hearer feel that they are moving about in a big Indian pilgrim city studded with shrines, dedicated to several gods of the Hindu Pantheon, in spite of the fact of seeing huge Bouddha stupas and Chaityas at many places. Does this not register the inestimable influence Hinduism has on Napalese life'? They are Hindus first and last, in spite and character, despite living away from Hindu India.
