Open air cremations at the #BagmatiRiver
, that take place on a daily basis. Cremations are part of life and death, but here in Pashupatinath they differ from what I’m used to, where the cremation is something private. As soon as we approached the Bagmati River, we could already see the smoke of a #cremation
that was taking place. There are several cremation places, one for the royal family, one for rich families with prestige and several others for the ‘normal’ people. The cremation places for the ‘normal’ people are located on the other side of the bridge, out of sight from the places that are used by the royals and the rich.
Even in death, there’s no equality 🤷🏻♀️
