Cow is the national animal of Nepal. Most of the people of Nepal are Hindus and cow is worshipped as the goddess of wealth (Goddess Laxmi). Killing of cow is prohibited in the hindu religion and in Nepal.

 

The national flag of Nepal is quite unique in shape. Nepali flag is the only double triangular shaped flag in the world. Moon resides in the upper triangle and the sun in the lower triangle. The blue color in the boarder of the flag denotes the peace loving nature of Nepalese. This flag was designed in the time of King Prithvi Narayan Shah of Nepal (Founder of Modern Nepal) around two and half centuries ago. In addition to this this flag carries various vedic importances.

Bhaktapur is an ancient newar city located in the east corner of the Kathmandu Valley, approximately 13 km (8 miles) from the Kathmandu Valley. Also known as an open museum, it is home to some of the best preserved historical monuments including palaces, courtyards, temples, pagodas, monuments, craftwork, hand-crafted peacock windows, etc, reflecting mostly Hinduism. It has two of the seven monument zones within the Kathmandu Valley listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. There in also a rich concentration of culture and tradition among the Newars of Bhaktapur. We have our own festivals, music and dances. The entire city is full of historical masterpieces.

Bhaktapur is also famous for it’s marvellous crafts including pottery, weavery, thanka and masks and is popular for its mask dances that reflect the lives of different Gods and deities. The name Bhaktapur literally translates to “City of Devotees”, thus one can expect to find a multitude of religious places, monuments and events in Bhaktapur. The place is renowned as the city of Gods.
