The Kathmandu Valley lies at the crossroads of ancient civilizations of Asia, and has at least 130 important monuments, including several pilgrimage sites for Hindus and Buddhists. Historically, the valley and adjoining areas made up a confederation known as the Nepal Mandala. Until the 15th century, Bhaktapur was its capital, when two other capitals, Kathmandu and Lalitpur (Patan), were established. Eventually the the three capitals grew together and Kathmandu proper became the capital of Nepal.
Hi Jeff, It has been 7 years since my last visit to Nepal and your photos bring back so many memories...I even recognize a few of the Sadhus as I have photographed them on 3 different occasions. I love all the portraits including those from the 'Old Folks Home' that I also visited the last time I was there.
Nepal is like Disneyland for photographers...so many great subjects, colors, and culture that is Vibrant in every way.
I enjoyed looking at every one of these photos. Thanks!
