Madhav Narayan Festival

Feb 03 2015

The month long Madhav Narayan festival ends today. This is one of the most difficult rituals practiced by Hindus of Nepal. Devotees undertake a month-long fast, eat one meal in a day without any salt, walk barefoot in the chilly cold winter mornings, roll on the ground before taking a holy dip in the Hanumante River.

Unmarried women take the fast to get a good husband and married women for their familie’s prosperity.

Location: Bank of Hanumante River, Bhaktapur

Camera: Nikon D600

Lens: Nikon 16-35mm f/4 VR / Sigma 150mm f/2.8
