Maha Shivaratri

Commemorating the birthday of Shiva which falls on a new moon day in the lunar month of Falgun, this festival takes place at all Shiva temples. Hundreds of sadhus (mystics/practicing monks) flock to this festival so be prepared for crowds. You’ll also see them bathing in the Bagmati’s ‘holy’ waters.
