In Hinduism, Kailash is considered to be the abode of Lord Shiva, one of the most revered deities in the religion. It is believed that Lord Shiva resides on the peak of Kailash with his consort, Parvati. Note: After covid, Kailash yatra was conducted only from 2023. And only non-Indians undertook this Holy yatra.


Some of the most significant Hindu temples in Nepal include the Pashupatinath Temple, the Swayambhunath Stupa (also known as the Monkey Temple), the Boudhanath Stupa, and the Muktinath Temple, among others. These temples attract millions of Hindu pilgrims from all over the world every year, especially during major Hindu festivals such as Shivaratri and Teej.

Sri Lanka

In addition to pilgrimage and worship, Hindu temples in Sri Lanka also play a role in cultural and social activities. Many temples organize festivals and celebrations that bring together the community and promote cultural exchange. For example, the Navaratri festival, which celebrates the triumph of good over evil, is celebrated with great enthusiasm in many Hindu temples across Sri Lanka.
