Deity With A Sword Was Stationed

Deity with sword

The statue was in state at the entrance of Dattatraya Temple

Shot at Tachupal Tole Square in Bhaktapur, Nepal.

In the square, there was Dattatraya Temple, which was a Hindu temple. And a big stone statue of a deity who had a sword in its hand was sitting neatly at the entrance of the temple. It guarded the temple for evils forever.

Some evils could give up entering into the temple when they found this statue. Nevertheless, now that I looked closer I found its face was somewhat funny. His mustache was cute and his eyes were round.
