terraced fields in the himalayas (nepal)

Terraced fields near Syang village (Nepal)

I noticed that in the middle of each field there is a small shrine made of round rocks painted in white, and a tree branch.­

I suppose this is a Tibetan tradition.­ Not sure if this is related to Buddhism, Hinduism, or some older Animist belief.­

If you know more about this tradition, please post a Comment!
