Mini-Kailash

I usually tell people I've been fortunate enough to circumambulate Mount Kailash twice, but that's not really true. I've actually been around fifteen times. Two were around the mountain in Western Tibet which has, for some time if not forever, been associated with the holy mount. The other thirteen (auspicious number) are around this Kailash, which presides in the middle of the courtyard of a Newar building I visited in Patan, part of Kathmandu, in August. Don't tell me they don't count!
