    Thanks for your valuable comments/advise.
    Had posted this pic in Flickr and the bit of description has been put to suit that generally put in Flickr.
    I thank Everest Uncensored for considering my pic worthy for their site.
    If more of description is required, I would be thankful if a mail is dropped to me so that I would make that extra efforts required by this site.

    Thanks all once again.

  2. Agree to comment made above by Suresh.

    And one thing, we should not presume that when we pronounce, everyone will know where “Budhanilkantha” is? What is the meaning of “Budhanilkantha”?

    People living in Kathmandu may know this, but there are people all around the world who visit EU. Hope you will try to add more details to the description in the form of comment below, to make it a reasonably complete post.

    Nice try to capture the whole in one frame, though.. Good job.. and keep clicking.

  3. Nice Pic ani Bhagwan lai yehi bata Namaskar,
    The full statue inside the frame would have been great.
    Also, the tight framing by excluding the blue line( at the top of the pic) should have made the composition even more interesting.
