Boy Was Swimming In The Holy River

Boy swimming in holy river

The holy river was a playground for kids

Shot at Pashupatinath Temple in the eastern part of Kathmandu, Nepal.

The temple was built by the Bagmati river which was one of the holiest rivers in Nepal. The crematory was built on the riverside and the smokes raised from there. Although the place was a sanctuary, it was also a playground for the local kids.

When I stood on the riverbank of the holy river, I saw some boys swimming. I was worried two things. One was whether the boys swimming received divine punishment. And the other was whether they had a stomach ache because of the dirty water.
