Suggester Says: "This photograph is as interesting as amazing! It's taken in western Nepal and the carvings in the rocks are apparently Buddhist scripture and symbology. I've never seen anything like this before. It intrigues me."

those rocks suggest the border of Nepal or something else?

No, not the border. You see hundreds of mani walls in the Himalaya of Nepal. The rock carving and types of rock used varied quite a lot from region to region. Mani walls are Buddhist devotional structures that are usually topped with carved rocks. The carvings are Buddhist scripture and symbology. When you walk past them you must keep the mani wall (or stupa or kani) on your right, unless you are in an area that is Bön: they walk the opposite way (wall, stupa, kani on your left).
