Many men wore a mustache or a beard here. At first, I thought the custom had derived from Islam, the most major religion in this country. Yet I saw the same kind of men when I visited the neighboring country, India. So it might be just an observance. Anyway, mustache or beard were the replacements for pierced accessories for women.

The man standing just in front of me also wore a gorgeous beard. During releasing the shutter, I worried whether the beardless men couldn't walk with their head held high.
