Some Nepali building owners have begun deconstruction and others have added bracing with hopes of one day soon salvaging and repairing.
I can’t help but wonder what this City was like before the devastation.
Though there has been much destruction, the resilient people of Kathmandu Nepal continue a vibrant busy life and still find time for celebration.
The signing of the constitution this week brought many out into the streets – near Durbar Square, we saw many street paintings such as this. _____________________________________
Many sacred temples and significant historic landmarks that have been destroyed.
There are often several structures within one temple plaza – some remain standing, such as the Hararti Devi main dome, while others directly adjacent lie in ruins.
My hope for them is to find the resources needed to restore these sacred places to their original form.
Namaste my Napali friends.
