Recent #NepalQuake (7.8 magnitude) killed thousands of people, completely destroyed thousands of houses and many historically important structures-some of them were #UNESCO heritage sites. Lets hope our government will restore these temples in coming years.
For now, some photos of these sites while I visited them before the quake.
[all pictures taken by me]
Kathmandu (Basantapur) Durbar Square is completely gone.
