The followers of Shiva and the Buddhists are one undivided community in Nepal, freely borrowing from their neighbors to their pantheon of sacred characters.

Thus, everyone is taking refuge from Bhairava. Two great stupas, Boudanath and Swayambunath are sacred places not only for Buddhists. The sanctity of Pashupatinath is irrefutable, and the living goddess Kumari – worshiped by the Newari people – is a popular attraction within the entire population of the city, and of course also tourists.

Cast members live in individual regions of the city, co-creating a colorful community whose members maintain regional traditions of professions and festivals. Details on some events related to selected social groups can be found in other articles. Below are some of my shots of the city and its inhabitants.

In the main picture, we present the panorama of the city from the Kopan hill.
