Leaving Vishwanath temple in Patan &heading2 #NepalLitFest. Will be in dialogue with HarishSharma, 2pm, Nepal Academy
A Krishna temple in Patan made from a single piece of stone. Inside Krishna is depicted with both Radha and Rukmini
The spectacular entrance to Patan Palace. Katmandu area alone has seven World Heritage sites. Stunning!
A peepul tree sprouted around&on top of this small outdoor temple to Gorakhnath. But no lingam inside, just His feet
Outdoor temple to Kal Bhairav, a manifestation of Lord Shiva as a dispenser of justice
These immense lions guard a Shiva temple inBasantpur. Katmandu is well worth a visit for lovers of ancient sculpture
Magnificent statue of Garuda in Basantpur palace courtyard. Even better carvings throughout but photography forbidden
1000 year old Kasthamandap (Wooden House)after which Katmandu is named. Sturdy sal wood pillars still standing strong
The "hippie temple" in Basantpur made famous by Dev Anand. No longer used for worship after the pot smokers took over
Exquisite wood carvings everywhere in Basantpur. Kumari is a maiden between 4&14 worshipped as a goddess by Nepalis
About to enter Kumari Ghar to seek the blessings of the Living Goddess. Note sign:Indians are not foreigners in Nepal
