For the forthcoming Maha Shaviratri festival, the temple has been visited by hundreds of Sadhus who have traveled from all across the nation and as far as neighboring India. They have taken refuge on the temple’s grounds, particularly in the Bankali and Pashupati areas.
According to the Pashupati Area Development Trust, the large gathering of Sadhus who have flocked to the temple for the festival has continued, and Nanga Babas are still traveling there from different regions of India. Ascetics who don’t wear clothing are known as nanga babas.
The Trust, the government organization in charge of looking after the Pashupatinath region, forecasted that about 4,000 Babas would visit the Pashupati shrine this year.
