Faded glory

Some bits and details about the old royal palace district from Patan, Kathmandu. It’s a great place to learn about the gods and goddesses – there is a small museum, where you can read about their attributes and representations, then you go out, observe, and try to figure them all out around the temple buildings. Crazy, big city, with all these treasures in the middle, in a small area where time has stopped for a little while. – And there are even a few lions hidden here and there.
