Fire and Water

Hinduism burn the body of dead people in a fire to help their soul return to life cycle earlier to make it a part of nature, this is an ancient belief. They believe life is pain and rejuvenation or reincarnation to return to life and living in difficulties. Hinduists hope to liberate from rebirth and go to heaven by being burnt.
Following Hinduism’s tradition, the Nepalese burn their corps who are above 12 years old in fire in the Bagmati riverside which is as sacred as Ganges River. It occurs in Pashupatinath which is the biggest temple of the world whose width is 264 hectares. This zone (3rd century B.C.) is the oldest place of worshiping statues.
It is a long time this river contains ash of the Nepalese.
