'Lions at Changu Narayan.'

	A girl steps out across the high threshold of the Vishnu Temple (ca. 1700) at Changu Narayan after having swept the inner sanctum with her broom. This main (western) entrance of the temple is surrounded by copper repoussé work and guarded by two lions. An elaborate torana surmounts the gate. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
