Buddha Eye Fountain. These somewhat mysterious, somewhat creepy, somewhat spiritual, somewhat uncomfortable eyes were all over Nepal. And it took some time before someone explained to us that they were supposed to be Buddha’s eyes. It was a little more reassuring to learn that they were defending us rather than watching us. A few varying stories and superstitions and explanations later it seemed that they were similar to the god’s eyes or evil eyes you find some commonly around the Mediterranean. Either a mix of something bigger than us watching over us or a shield to protect us from evil.
