In Nepal, water and religion go hand in hand. Giving people water is regarded as a virtue and taking money for water can be seen a sin.
There are abundant water resources in the mountainous country, but for many people, communal taps are their only source of fresh water. Stone taps were built all over Nepal, some of them dating back a thousand years.
In Kathmandu, residents have set up their own piped water system from these communal taps. Sharathchandra R reports from Kathmandu.
