Boudhnath stupa, prayer wheel

 

 

 

Evening. A small room with candles and prayer wheel on a side of the giant stupa. An old man inside is keeping candles light, he’s singing quitly. Time to time mantis enters the room, turns the wheel, goes around the room and leaves through the same door turning the wheel once again. The bell is attached to the wheel. Since its dark outside candlelight is the only light in the room.
