The main ornamental structure in bahas (the Newari name for Buddhist monasteries) of Kathmandu Valley were chaityas with images of the Buddha facing the four directions. This was topped by a stupa resembling Swayambhu. The chaityas stood on rectangular pedestals that had lotus designs carved into their outer faces. The lower part of the chaityas show the Buddha in different poses and various other Buddhist iconographies. The courtyard of bahas was used for things such as daily work, children’s playgrounds and resting places. Young girls wearing loose trousers, chaubandi cholo and huge silver kalli on their ankles play hopscotch. Nearby on a pati (public resting place) an old man sits smoking while a woman works at a spinning wheel.
