Figure By The Wall

Figure hobbling along in Pashupatinath

A figure was hobbling along

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

Although any heathendom can't enter the main hall of this temple, everyone can visit the riverbank of Bagmati River. So I watched the crematorium built on the riverbank. Dead bodies were burnt beside the holy river and the smoke raised from them. Hindus don't make their own graves. After the burning, they scatter their ashes into the river.

When I watched the opposite side of the crematory, a figure appeared. It was plodding alone.
