A visitor to Kathmandu cannot possibly miss the many temples located throughout the city. This underlines the importance of religion in the daily lives of most Nepali. The people are largely either Hindu or Buddhist and these co-exist happily, with temples for each often residing side by side.

Officially Nepal is a Hindu country but in practice there is a blend of both Hindu and Buddhist beliefs in the everyday life of the Nepali. There are also smaller groups of Muslims, Christians and Shamanists in the country.
