Many temples stand in Durbar Square facing the former royal palace. I am fascinated by the majestic temples here and there, but I am overwhelmed by the pigeons that hang out in this square. They are on the ground and on the roofs of the temples. There are countless pigeons in the square.

While I was looking at a large number of pigeons, a man came over and started throwing food at them. Then all the pigeons start to flock to him at once. With this many pigeons, the amount of food he feeds them on a daily basis must be unbelievable.
