25 Indian priests in Kathmandu for 'Kshama Puja'

Kathmandu, Feb 23 (TIWN) At least 25 special priests from various sacred temples of South India have reached Kathmandu to perform 'Kshama Puja' (forgiveness worship) at Pashupatinath temple in Kathmandu as the authorities have started work to replace the existing silver jalhari of the temple with gold-plated jalhari.

Kshama Puja is often performed if there is need to make any changes to the temple, replace idols or if regular prayers are obstructed for some reasons, the Himalayan Times reported.  Pashupati Area Development Trust (PADT), has in this regard, invited a total of 121 priests, including 96 Nepali priests, to perform Kshama Puja.
