The Stone of Faith

Faith is universal and rooted deep within us, like our thoughts and aspirations. Faith is a feeling that resides within the depths of the heart, which brings people closer to each other. The Dupcheshwar Temple in Nuwakot is a perfect example of Faith. Faith makes people lively and dynamic and guides them in the right direction. Faith is not just related to religion; it is associated with a person's emotions and way of life. For those who revere the stone of Faith, the stone is indeed divine. It connects people to nature and to the land. It is the amalgamation of religion and culture. The essence of Faith is the same, regardless of the differences in race, religion, and creed. It is a symbol of unity and connects people from all walks of life.
