Photographer's Note

In Kathmandu the principle Hindu temple is the Pashputinath. It contains hundreds of beautifully carved shrines to many, many gods. Most of these date from the 14th to 16th centuries. Often they are inhabited by Sadhus or Holy men. Quite what they do for toiletry arrangements, I am not sure, because there are no bathrooms around there. This seems to be an important intersection where several holy men meet up and talk about whatever holy men talk about. They also await donations from the visiting faithful. Their different dress signifies the different sub sects and the various gods that they worship.
