Meditation Chamber

Category: Sense of Place

One day I was walking on the bank of the Bagmati River which runs next to Pashaputinath Temple, the oldest Hindu temple in Kathmandu, when I noticed a man going out of the “meditation” room. The Bagmati River is considered to have highly sacred properties, which should explain the odd location for the little meditation shrine.

Location: Kathmandu, Nepal
