Sign Of A Devotee On His Forehead

Sadhu

The sadhu was sitting in a corner of the square

Shot at Durbar Square in Patan, Nepal.

A Sadhu, an ascetic wandering monk in Hinduism was sitting by the wayside in the square. His beard was so bushy and he was wearing some heavy necklaces. When he noticed me, he asked for shooting. And I took some photographs of him.

On reconsidering the matter, it was strange because Sadhu was cloistered. Nevertheless, he seemed to look for the foreign tourists in the tourist attraction. Maybe his job was to be taken photographs by the tourists.
