TRISHULI: Former King Gyanendra Shah on Saturday visited different temples  in Nuwakot district.

The former monarch, accompanied by his family members, paid homage at the Rudreshwar Mahadev Temple in Bidur and Ram Temple in Battar in Nuwakot.

Also, the former king, his wife Komal, daughter-in-law  Himani and grandson Hridayendra offered prayers at the Bhairavi Temple for half an hour.

Hindu organisations and leaders and cadres of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal had welcomed the former royals at the temple.

Moreover, locals welcomed the former king and queen handing them flowers and placing auspicious urns in front of their houses.

Shah got off his vehicle at the Battar Campus gate and walked some 500 metres to the Ram Temple.

The former king declined to talk to the journalists gathered at Battar, saying this was his purely personal visit.

When his personal secretary, pointing to the journalists, said that they were journalists, the former King said: "I came here to pay homage to Bhawani (goddess). May peace prevail in the country again. This is purely my personal visit. I don't want to talk about other issues now."
