Panauti Nepal

Last weekend we went out to the south eastern corner of the Kathmandu Valley and walked through the medieval town of Punauti. The shines in this little hamlet date to the 13th century, and although it is not the same as running my hands over the stones that were placed by the Inca, the experience is equally sublime in a spiritual sense. As we descended down into the shrines, this was my focal point with Fabi and Hunter in the foreground crossing the bridge.

The town is holy because it sits at the convergence of two sacred rivers. Several shines sit within this little village and we witnessed women making offerings in front of the shrines. We also came across a Baba who gave us no particular notice and disappeared into the temple shortly after our arrival.
