The Prime Minister yesterday had made a speech in the Nepal parliament and won the hearts of the nation. This Monday he decided to touch the religious chords of the community and thus made a visit to the Pashupatinath temple. He stayed there for forty five minutes and performed a special prayer. “He took part in a special ‘puja’ which was conducted by Ganesh Bhatta, the Indian head priest of the temple, and lasted for 35 minutes,” said Govinda Tandon, the member secretary of Pashupati Area Development Trust. Apart from that, the Indian Prime Minister also made an offering of about 2500 kilos of sandalwood at the temple. Almost half kilo of sandalwood is used to make a paste that is daily used on the Shiva ‘linga’ at the temple.
