Photograph by Kwok Hung Chan

A flurry of pigeons rains down on Durbar Square's human and bovine visitors in Kathmandu, Nepal. The birds are a common fixture at this UNESCO World Heritage site, located opposite the old royal palace that served as the royal Nepalese residence until the 19th century. Today, the palace is operated as a museum.
