Nepal is a harmonious conglomerate of cultures, religions and languages making it a cultural melting pot. Diverse customs have evolved due to different ethnic groups with their distinct practices. The Newar population have immensely impacted the history, culture, art and architecture of the country, and to learn more about the cultural dynamics of Nepal some time conversing and mingling with the Newars is called for. Nepal celebrates a plethora of vibrant festivals all year round from the Tibetan Buddhist new year to Holi, the festival of colors. Architectural masterpieces are out in the open. One such heritage is the Durbar square, the epitome of traditional architecture of the old Nepalese town. Nepal also teems with religious sites and beautiful sacred stupas which makes it a haven for pilgrims.
