Kathmandu (Rashtriya Samachar Samiti): Tourist ticket counters in the Pashupati area, which have been closed for a year and a half due to the Corona epidemic, have reopened.

The Pashupati Area Development Fund has stated that the counter, which had been closed since April last year due to outbreak of corona epidemic in Nepal, has been reopened.

Counters have been set up at three places for foreign tourists to visit the Pashupati area. Counters are set up at Tilganga, Vatsaleshwari and Guheswari for foreign tourists.

At present, 100 tourists enter the Pashupati area daily from all the three counters. Before the outbreak of the Corona epidemic, 300 tourists used to travel to Pashupati area daily to buy tickets.

According to the fund, the Pashupatinath main temple has been reopened after Corona. The temple is open since morning for devotees who want to pay homage to Pashupatinath and perform a special pooja.
