Sightseeing

It was raining today, but we decided to go out sightseeing anyway. We're in a very historical city; it's also very religiously and ethnically diverse.
We saw Hindu temples.
Islamic mosques

...and dargas.
Buddhist temples,
where people light gigantic incense sticks
and let birds go free after they pray.


The diversity makes for a very colorful city with lots for a sightseer to discover. The literal colors are also a pleasant change--they give the city character and aren't garish like those I'm used to seeing elsewhere.
I give a thumbs-up to Georgetown. :) video
