Monkey Temple, Kathmandu

Prayer flags in evening light

One, two, three four little monkeys

At first I thought it said it is prohibited to take a nap sitting on the Buddha.




 A monk watches the growing scrap between them in amusement

Prayer wheels 


The dogs got into a terrible row with each other on the stairs, and this old man, carefully making his way up to the temple, leapt into action, hitting his cane on the ground and shooing the offending dogs away from their poor bullied compatriot in the drain. May we all be as forthright when the occasion necessitates.
