Tap at any source, or lift the curtain over anything, or
probe a little deep anywhere, sure you can find
Hinduism firmly and impregnably entrenched, and emitting thought waves and
perpetually, becoming responsible for peace and progress in every segment of
its capital, the repository of Nepalese culture and rallying point of every
facet of its own distinct life - both ancient and modem reflects the tremendous
impact of Hinduism and the astounding capacity of its power of assimilation of
other 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 dimensions, 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 eyes, first and fill the souls
next with sanctity by their gigantic shapes, artistic adornments, unusual
dimensions and hoary traditions. They incidentally mirror the Napalese religio
-social life and the spectacular achievements made over years, taking
nourishment from its parent Hindu religion.
