Kathmandu Valley    Patan - Shankhamul Ghats   

Patan - Shankhamul Ghats

Alternative Names: Sankhamul Ghat, Shankamool


Ghats are Places for Ritual Bathing and Cremation at or near Rivers.
My idea is that each Place (Area) in the City should be represented by at least one picture of a Temple, a Shrine, a Chaitya and Sculptures.


ca. 1830
