Rudragnag is a very beautiful and powerful place. The constant murmuring
sound from the nearby river and the many waterfalls from small rivers
entering into the mainstream make Rudranag a special place to spend
the night. Although the special water-sound in Rudranag is loud,
it also seems to calm the mind and create a soothing effect. Maybe
that is the reason why The Indian God Shiva is said to have been
meditating here for 1000 years.
is also a favorite of many Himalayan Sadhus. They come here for
practicing deep meditation in solitude. Some of them, like the man
you see on the photo, live in mountain caves in the surrounding
different tribes come to Rudranag even from far away to make their
offerings. The people from Shilla have even an ancient song in praise
of the tranquility of Rudranag. It is sung in a language only a
few old people in the Village know.
this photo you see the female leaders of the Village of Malana.
The woman to the far left has been democratically elected as the
leader of the Malana people. There are a lot of Greek words in the
language of Malana. Soldiers from the Macedonian Alexander The Great's
army settled down here in ancient times.

Malana tribe has come to Rudranag to sacrifice goats to their Gods
in order to please them. On the picture they are slaughtering the
goat in a ceremonial way by simply tearing it apart. Of course after
killing it first.
