An eternal flame in Dailekh – Shreesthan Jwala

This flame in Shreesthan, Dailekh is burning forever. The local people worship this place for the “devine power” that has caused the light to burn like this. Those who know a little science believe the flame is lighted by the natural gas that is accumulated in the area underneath.
