On a small old house which seems to be a kind of cafe for locals, between Thamel district and Durbar square. The figure in the center of the swastika is a sanskrit word pronounced "Shree", written श्री. It is a common word in Sanskrit (Nepali, Hindi), used as a high form of respect. It is still used in front of people's names to address them in a respectful manner.
