After the Earthquake : around Durbar Square, Kathmandu

A small photo essay on some of the damage around Durbar Square – nine months after the 25th April 2015 earthquake.   Heartbreaking indeed especially having seen the place in tact so recently.

It is fascinating to see how the Nepal people still use these spaces – even in the midst of all the damage – sacred spaces are still sacred, meeting places are still for meeting.

There are stacks of beautifully carved timber and bricks waiting to be recommissioned into a restored building.  Many houses have collapsed; the task of rebuilding, and rehousing the people who previously lived in them is immense – if not overwhelming for this country.
