Outside the main Durbar Sq entrance gate is this little piece of architectural whimsy on the roof of the small Shiva Parvati Temple. Giving graphic representation to the lyric ‘birds do it, bees do it…’, the temple roof struts feature camels, cows and even elephants engaged in the act of making sweet love, usually in the missionary position!
