Nepal has mountains in the North and plains in the South. We are culturally very rich, as having different religions, cultures, traditions and languages. Hence, our many heritage sites belong to mainly Hindu and Buddhists cultures. Different religions are followed here in Nepal like Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Muslim etc. However, Hinduism and Buddhism are the two most followed religions with the variety of gods and goddess, numerous temples, stupas and monasteries.
