Two Hours Outside Janabahaa

One can easily spend half a day, without knowing how much time has passed by, inside the peaceful courtyard of Janabahaa studying the innumerable intricate artwork strewn all over the temple complex and the human activity happening all day round oblivious to the centuries-old art masterpieces.

Step out of the complex's main gate in the south, and one will encounter Kel Tol -- one of the busiest thoroughfares in the core area of Kathmandu city, joining the ancient trade center of Ason with Wongha (Indrachok). And one can also while away another couple of hours effortlessly in the middle of Kel Tol watching life go by, as afternoon hues give way to dusk, evening sights and sounds and the inevitable power cut.

Earlier reference to this this street on this blog can be found at Padmapani Rediscovered and Reclaiming the Streets.
