A postcard from Nepal: Manakamana
Prayers at Manakamana
A mountain top temple in Nepal
We rode a cable car to the top of a mountain to find a Hindu temple that draws thousands of believers. Many arrive barefooted. The small town that has sprung up to serve their needs is full of shops selling garlands, offerings and even chickens and goats for sacrifices.
Other people’s beliefs are often mysterious to outsiders, maybe even to themselves. So maybe this is an appropriate postcard to share with Terri for Sunday Stills?

I love the reds in this picture.
Thank you – that’s just what drew me to take the photo!
C’est trop joli my grandson says… (Very pretty)
Dis lui merci bien 😃
Je n’y manquerai pas…
That’s true Sarah … mysterious in many ways! A lovely postcard from far away.
Thank you, glad you liked it 😊
I’m very impressed that you mange to post while traveling, especially to an exotic destination like this!
I did some drafts before leaving with the blocks and formatting in place. I just need to upload and add one photo, and add a heading and a sentence or two! I couldn’t manage one of my regular posts 😉
I’m really enjoying these Nepal postcards. I can hardly wait for you to get back home and tell us more.
Thanks Rose – I have lots to share about this trip in due course!
Thank you for the postcards, Sarah! Wonderful adventure!
It is indeed Amy!
Can’t read that town name without thinking of The Muppets. How terribly irreverent of me…
Haha 😆 Visiting that town was an incredible experience, a real bombastic hit to all the senses. I’ll share it properly in a post when we get back.

thanks for the postcard from Nepal and for linking with Sunday Stills, Sarah. Pilgrimages to outposts far and wide is definitely a mystery!
You’re welcome Terri, I’m glad you like it 😊
I like your postcards. And, they get to us before you get back!
Thanks 😊 Yes, no need to rely on slow snail mail for these!
Great postcards. If they’re not too much of an imposition – keep ’em coming please!
Not an imposition at all, the only challenge is the erratic wifi in some places! I’ll try to ‘send’ a few more before we return home 😃
