Woman praying in front of altar

The woman prayed in front of an altar

Shot in Swayambhunath, Nepal.

Swayambhunath was a Buddhist religious complex atop a hill. There were many stupas in the complex. And the biggest one rose in the center of the site. Many worshipers went circles around it.

The woman in this photo was one of them. She wore a saree and stopped in front of an altar which was attached to the biggest stupa. And she started praying in front of the altar. At the same time, a bird was flying near her as if it was about to deliver her wishes.
