Carved in Stone

King Pratap Malla statue

King Pratap Malla statue

The historical areas of Kathmandu were home to quite a few statues. This statue of King Pratap Malla resided in Durbar Square and was set facing the entrance to a small temple. It appears he is kneeling in reverence to the God housed inside. Most statues I saw were of animals or Gods.
