In the deeply religious countries of the Himalayas you can find as many Gods as people, as many temples as there are houses and more festivals than days in a year. So what could be better than exploring some of the many beautiful temples on your holiday to the Himalayas?
Nepal alone boasts more than 3000 Buddhist and Hindu temples. Some of the largest and most important temples of their religions and tiny gems, hidden in remote villages, richly decorated and plain, humble temples – you will find any of them here.
India is home to many different religions, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Islam, Christianity, Zoroastrianism, and many others – so there’s a fair share of different temples to visit! See the Lotus Temple in Delhi, the erotic sculptures of the Jain temples in Khajuraho, visit the holy islands of Rameshwaram and Majuli and experience Buddhism in the Tibetan community in Dharamsala.
Bhutan is a deeply religious Buddhist kingdom. Take a walk to the beautiful and mysterious Tiger’s Nest (Taktsang Monastery) near Paro to find out about the roots of Buddhism in Bhutan. You can see religion play a big part in people’s daily lives in Bhutan, and travelling at the right time, you’ll be welcomed to join in to religious festivals held at the different monasteries in Bhutan.
Tibet was very much isolated from the rest of the world for a long time. In this environment Tibetan Buddhism developed and flourished – it is now practiced all over the Himalayan region and beyond. Discover the roots of this unique, ancient religion and find peace and serenity in remote temples and monasteries in Tibet.
