Place For The Balneum Bath

Place for the balneum bath

The place was deserted

Shot in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The religious majority in Nepal is Hinduism and it had been a state religion once. And the one of the ceremonies is to take a ritual bath in the river. I found a place for the balneum bath on the riverbank.

Yet it was deserted. Only a woman was taking a bath at that time. And she didn't seem to have any rituals. She seemed to wash her long hair there. Although I thought this place was used for ritual bath, it might be wrong.
