A big stupa was towering in the center of the precinct. And a woman wearing a saree was standing in front of an altar which was furnished at the big stupa. She was just praying.

On the other hand, some pigeons were relaxing on the stupa. I thought it was unnecessary for the pigeons to pray because they didn't have any earthly desires like human beings. In that way, they were near the nirvana much more than human beings.
