Peanuts prohibited in the garden around The Great Stupa in Dehradun, India.

This photograph was taken in the Clement Town area of Dehradun, India, in the two-acre garden surrounding a large Tibetian Stupa. I have no idea why eating peanuts is specifically prohibited here; I imagine many people would have had to display a peanut allergy for that one food to be banned from the area.
