 Bagmati River, Bihar
Bagmati River is a river of Nepal. As flows through the Kathmandu valley the river acts as a cross road separating Kathmandu from Lalitpur. Then it flows in India through Bihar. Both Hindus and Buddhists consider it as a most sacred river. A number of Hindu temples are located on the banks of this river.

The importance of Bagmati River is immense among the Hindus. It also lies in the fact that Hindus are cremated on the banks of this holy river, and Kirants (An ethnic group concentrated in Nepal) are buried in the hills by its side.

Bagmati River originates where three headwater streams converge at Baghdwar. From Baghdwar, the Bagmati become wide and swift with a high load of suspended solids, giving the river a grey appearance. Bagmati River flows southwest about ten kilometres through terraced rice fields in Kathmandu Valley. The resistant rock strata interrupt the flow in places, including at Pashupatinath Temple in Nepal. Beyond the temple, the Bagmati River flows south until joined by the larger west-flowing Monahara River, then turns west itself.
