Kathmandu: Celebrations have already begun across the world for the 4th International Yoga Day, which is on June 21. Taking the ancient Indian practice to new heights this year is Nepal, where monks and locals practiced Yoga at the Muktinath temple, 12,500 feet above sea level. The Muktinath temple is regarded as a very sacred place of worship by both Hindus and Buddhists.
On his visit to Nepal last month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made a special visit to the Muktinath temple. The prime minister in his monthly radio address ‘Mann Ki Baat’, had urged people to make the 4th International Yoga Day a memorable one.
