The picture above was taken in Swayambhunath, an ancient religious complex consisting of a stupa, a variety of shrines and temples, atop a hill in the west of Kathmandu city.
Here a tourist is getting a taste of the Buddhist customs prevalent in the holy place. The very base of any civilization are the beliefs that govern them, and allowing yourself to participate in the unknown is a good way of experiencing their beliefs. It’s a window into a society’s faith and aspirations, and a great way of knowing what they are about.
