In the courtyard of the Kathesimbhu Stupa just behind the stupa, is also a small pagoda of Harti, the goddess of the smallpox.
Further we saw a lot of statues of deities, like the image of Avalokiteshvara.
Near the entrance of the stupa are statues of lions atop concrete pillars.
It amazed me, how many small builded structures, images and statues were concentrated at one place. By the overload of information, it was impossible to see, recognize or remember it all. So I enjoyed the general impression and atmosphere of the area.
