Photo series #4 – Patan

December 26, 2015

My trip to Nepal ends in the city of Patan, located in the Kathmandu Valley. Patan is charming with its temples in Durban Square and its red brick houses. And the atmosphere is a little quieter than Kathmandu.

Then I had the chance to meet the Kumari, a young pre-pubescent girl worshiped as a goddess.

Photo series #2 – “Monkey Temple” and Boudhanath

December 19, 2015

Boudhanath is one of the most famous Buddhist shrines in Nepal. Despite the fact that its dome has been destroyed by the earthquake in April, it remains an important place of pilgrimage for Nepalese.
As for the “Monkey Temple”, it is one of the oldest temple in Kathmandu. Monkeys occupy the place, and to access to the temple there are 365 steps to climb, but once arrived the view on Kathmandu is just awesome.
