I came to a blank space during rambling along the streets of Kirtipur. And I found some objects there. They were a Lingam and a trident. Lingam is a representation of Shiva, a Hindu deity. Beside it, a trident which was a symbol of Shiva was stuck on the ground.

There was also yoni which was a representation of Shakti, a personification of divine feminine creative power on the bottom of Lingam. The union of them means the essence of life. Apart from Christianity, Hinduism shows the erotic inclination sometimes.
