The home Living Goddess, Kumari Bahal at Kathmandu Durbar Square survives the quake

The 25/04 Earthquake of 7.9 moment magnitude that shook Nepal has created a lot of work for us so that we could invite our valued guests who are very much willing to visit Nepal.

Although the quake hit many historic monuments, making significant damages there are hundreds of heritage sites, which stood still during the quake.  Three ancient cities Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan has suffered  architectural loss during Quake 2015; however, the hopes against the hope to rebuild all our heritage sites has not faded away. The vibrant and colorful old Bazaar Asan, which is also the major tourist hub to see the best of authentic Newari culture had negligible affect.

Today we have covered the status of Kathmandu Durbar Square after the quake. The temples of Kasthamandap, Maju Dega, Narayan Vishnu, Trailokya Mohan, Krishna (Chasin Dega), and Basantapur Tower fell down to the grounds during the quake, which will be rebuild soon by thousands of artists determined to revive the cultural and artistic legacies of glorious Nepalese history.

Kumari House- the home of the living goddess survived the disaster. Other monuments of Kathmandu Durbar Square that decline to surrender the Quake 2015 are Bimaheshwor Temple, Kabindradpur Sattal, House of the Priest, Kal Bhairab, Mahhendreshwar Temple, Taleju Temple, Kabindra, Vishnu and Indra Temples and Jagannath Temple among others.
