Sadhu, Kathmandu

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Patrick De talance

Taken in the temple of Pashupatinath in Kathmandu this Sadhu (wise man) sits there all day. We exchanged a few words, some signs and then took the picture. His face looked quiet and peaceful while in the back we could hear the cries of the people saying their last goodbyes to a beloved sun, husband or wife, a moment filled with very mixed feelings and emotions.

Location: Kathmandu, Nepal
