In the center of the city, a famous Hindu temple stood. The gate in the photo was one of the entrances of the temple. It was flanked by two statues of lion which were guarding the precinct. On the other hand, an enigmatic statue was on the ground in the foreground.

Like in Japan, heteromorphic animals protect the sanctuary also in Nepal. Human beings were thought that they were not good enough to guard the sacred areas in both cultures.
