Two Tibetan kids wearing amulet necklaces

Size: 1024×675

Two children at a Tibetan refugee camp in Pokhara, Nepal. They are wearing amulets around their necks. Many of the younger Tibetans are born outside Tibet in refugee camps in different parts of the world, including the ones in Nepal.

Amulets are worn by children to keep evil spirits away.
