KHOTANG: On the occasion of Ram Nawami festival, devotees have thronged the Halesi Mahadev Temple located in Khotang district.

A 15-day festival began in the popular tourist destination of the region on Friday.

After the construction of a bridge and well-maintained road, visit to this place has been easier for pilgrims. On the other hand, growing inflow of domestic as well as foreign tourists have increased further development of infrastructures.

Today also, foreign tourists from India, China, Bhutan and Bangladesh and domestic tourists from Kathmandu, Dharan, Biratnagar, Janakpurdham and Pokhara have crowded the place.

According to the Chief District Officer, Chandra Bahadur Karki, dozens of security personnel and volunteers have been mobilised to ensure peace and order in the festival considering the high number of visitors.

It is believed that Haleshi Mahadev will fulfill desires of its devotees.

Mahadev Gupha, Dharmadwar, Papdwar, Basaha Gupha, Bhairav Gupha and Dudelo Gupha among other places are popular destinations among the visitors during the festival time.
