Fire and Flowers.

Kathmandu - Nepal.

Pashupanitah : le quartier de Kathmandou où se déroulent les crémations.
Toute la famille et les amis assistent à la cérémonie, inchangée depuis des siècles. Les cendres sont ensuite dispersées dans la rivère, la Bagmati, qui se jette dans le Gange, le grand fleuve sacré de l’Hindouisme.

Pashupanitah: the district of Kathmandu where cremations take place.
All family and friends attend the ceremony, unchanged for centuries. The ashes are then scattered in the river Bagmati, which flows into the Ganges, the great sacred river of Hinduism.

Best viewed in orignal size.
