Nepal, Asia

People stop to look at a display erected in Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital city, in November to celebrate the birthday of Bhairav, a Hindu god believed to be the incarnation of Shiva. Bhairav is considered to be a god of destruction. Eggs, peanuts, beans and other food are displayed with a fish, which is associated with tales of Bhairav, including one in which he takes the form of Matsyendra, a fish god. This display is erected each year in Indrachowk, one of Kathmandu’s market areas.
