Go and go to Kathmandu to feed the pigeons. I can't just fly from Hong Kong to London like Mr. Tony Leung. After feeding the pigeons, I flew back to Hong Kong by plane. And I can only fly from Guangzhou to Kathmandu for a while.
Come to Nepal, naturally, go to its capital, Kathmandu to take a look, the first is Kathmandu Durbar Square. This square is still the center of the old town and a glorious world cultural heritage of Kathmandu. The buildings on the square are typical of the ancient buildings of the Nepalese Marathi period, and the red brick walls shine under the sunlight.
There are many pigeons in the square. It is a kind of dense corn. You can buy some corn to feed the pigeons. The life here is so lazy. In the morning, the sunrise, the ancient buildings and the tourists constitute a beautiful scenery. Walking in a leisurely way is better than heaven.

On the Durbar Square in Kathmandu, those who hold candles and pray.
Whether it is a person, a dog, or a dove, in this swaying flame, a very harmonious and tranquil environment is formed.
Located in the Durbar Square in Kathmandu, the Kumarima Temple (Live of the Living Goddess) is a mysterious place where you can't help but hunch.
The goddess of living, commonly referred to as "Kumari", is regarded as the embodiment of the royal goddess Taezhu, served by the virgins before the menarche.
When King Jaya Pukaras was in power, it was said that a girl was "attached" by the goddess Kumari, claiming to be a patron of the Nepalese Valley.
Since then, people have begun to worship the goddess of life, and have also built a magnificent house with windows to support the selected girl.
It is said that before the selection of the goddess of life, the first choice is to choose a few minorities in the Sakyamm caste (the Nepalese believe that this caste is the descendant of the Buddha of the Buddha), and there is no physical defect in the small 3 to 4 years old. The girls then placed them in a dark, large room near the gate of the Old King's Palace, and then they wore a scary mask and dressed as a demon, and suddenly ran out to scare them.
At this time, the girl who is panicked will be eliminated, and only the girl who is the most calm and calm will be selected. People believe that this girl is superb because she is the embodiment of the goddess.
The selected girl will be supported in a pavilion next to the Monkey God, symbolizing the goddess of Taleju, Gali and Difficult Mother, named Kumari.
Although the chosen goddess of life is a privilege, she has to leave home to meet her family, to leave the trajectory of secular life, and to live in the attic of the temple before her first menarche. Closed on weekdays, the feet can't touch the ground. Only in special festivals and time periods will the people go to worship and be blessed by her.
[Note] Tourists are prohibited from taking pictures or taking pictures of the goddess of life. On the left side of a picture postcard is the live goddess of Nepal today.
