12 Indian pilgrims died and 37 more injured on 21 April 2015 after a bus accident in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The bus with Indian number plate was carrying around 45 pilgrims from Gujarat on a visit to the Pashupatinath temple in Kathmandu.

They were returning to Gorakhpur in India after a pilgrimage to Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu.

The bus veered off the Prithvi highway at a point about 16 kilometers (10 miles) west of Kathmandu at Naubise village in Dhading district.

The bus fell about 300 meters from the highway before it landed in a river at the bottom of the hill.

The famous 5th century Pashupatinath temple is dedicated to a manifestation of Shiva called Pashupati (Lord of Animals). It attracts thousands of pilgrims each year, mostly from India.
