Two wise men celebrate Shiva's birthday
Yesterday, Kathmandu's Pashupatinath Temple played host to the yearly Maha Shivarati festival to celebrate Shiva's birthday. Thousands of pilgrims and sadhus flocked here from all over India and Nepal to worship during the day and smoke up all night. It was impossible to move in the crowd but everyone was relaxed until the King showed up and his motorcade was stoned. I took this shot a few days before as the temple started to get ready.
