Hindu Painting At Pashupatinath

There was so much to see at Pashupatinath. The temple complex, the ghats, the people, Sadhus and all the action. Tucked in a corner was a modest building with not-so-modest murals.

Portraying the lives of a fraction of Hinduism's gods in beautiful, vibrant colors, the murals definitely draw one's eye. Take a look.

The mural-covered building.

On the left, that's the blue-tinged cowherd, Krishna.  On the right: Shiva depicted with his ever-present trident and snakes.

The monkey god Hanuman. And the remover of obstacles, Ganesh.
