Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Johannes Bachtiar

As a group of local students moving out the narrow exit, I saw this praying man. He looked so peaceful seemingly not knowing my presence looking at him. I did not see any alms bowl. I asked my guide to ask if I could photograph him. Soonest the guide nodded and moved out the view, I took this picture.

Location: Chimi Lhakang Temple Punakha
