High priests of Nepal's Pashupathinath temple used to be from South India. So, for centuries. They were Havyaka Brahmins from Gokarna, wel versed in Vedic rituals. No longer so. Maoist governament sacked them recently. It should be noted that Kings of Kathmandu were called "Karnataka Rathna Simhasanadhishvara", indicating some Kannada connection!
"Where did you come from where did you go. When did you come from Kathmandu" yo!
