Swayambhunath has many stupas. This is the oldest Buddhist temple in Nepal. The biggest stupa is located in the center of the temple and visitors go around the stupa to pay their respects. The woman in this photo wearing a saree was one of the visitors who were going around the huge stupa.

When she came to the altar at the side of the stupa, she stopped and started to pray. Then, startled by her prayers, a dove flew close by. Perhaps it had taken off to bring her wish to the Buddha.
