As I was wandering around the town of Kirtipur in the rain, I came across a steep staircase. Looking up the stairs, I saw an old man with a bent back, holding an umbrella as he climbed. As if resisting the pouring rain, the old man slowly climbed the stairs.

At the top of the stairs stood a Hindu temple in the Newari style. The distinctive roof could be seen from the bottom of the stairs, and it looked as if it was about to attack me. Apparently, the old man was going to pay a visit to this temple despite the bad weather.
