Facade of Bagh Bhairab Temple
Shot in Kirtipur, Nepal. The Newari style temple in the photo is Bagh Bhairab Temple. The principal image of this triple-roofed temple is Bhairab, the fierce manifestation of Shiva and is sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists. The windows are decorated with wooden carvings.
ネパールのキルティプルで撮影。写真のネワール様式の寺院は、バク・バイラブ寺院。この三階建ての寺院の本尊はシヴァの化身のひとつであるバイラヴァだ。バイラヴァは「恐怖すべきもの」という意味を含むようだ。シヴァの化身が本尊だと、ヒンドゥー教の寺院という気がしてしまうが、ここは仏教徒にとっても聖地になっているようだった。
