'Hanuman in Bhaktapur's Ram Temple.'

	Hanuman in the Ram Temple near Bhaktapur's Hanuman Ghat.
Owing to his ability to ward of evil spirits, the Hindu monkey god Hanuman is one of the most popular gods in Nepal. His statues are often covered in vermilion paste and clad in a robe. This one has received so much paste during offering that it just looks like an orange blob. Photo Paul Smit.
