Nepal, Asia

Babu Lal Buddha, a Buddhist monk, stands in front of a temple in Basantapur Durbar Square in Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital city, atop bricks that toppled during a major earthquake in April 2015. The square contains Hindu temples and historic landmarks, but nothing of Buddhist significance. The monk, who came to Nepal on a pilgrimage from India, stands in a posture of meditation and visitors to the square often photograph him and place money in his bowl, which funds his pilgrimage.
