This is a UNESCO world heritage sige that's in the process of being restored. Took a cab here from the hotel as well as to other sites. The ride itself was an adventure (4 cabs; none of the seatbelts worked in the backseat) as the drivers maneuvered with other cars, motorcycles, bikes, and pedestrians - so many really close calls...

Visit and contribute to its reconstruction. Indeed a tragic loss of a valuable piece of Nepal's spiritual and cultural heritage.

The atmosphere is really quite absorbing. Lots of temples and statues etc, to see, even if the earthquake has taken its toll. Really unmissable if you are in this city. A few hawkers around but they aren't much of a bother.

The 9 tiered stand remains but the temple is gone. Just RUBBLE. It's a shame. You can imagine how painful it was for the victims.
