The powerful quake has made significant impact on the historic monuments of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu. However, many edifices have survived the quake. Here we have the photo essay on Kathmandu Durbar Square, the major UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Kathmandu. The essay reflects the status of the site after the quake.
The photo essay of other UNESCO World Heritage Sites will be updated in our next update.
Kathmandu Durbar Square
The cluster of ancient temples, palaces. courtyards and monuments that were built during different centuries ( from 16th to 20th century), Kathmandu Durbar Square is probably the most vibrant place in Kathmandu. Though the quake has demolished some of its important edifices, the renovation or rebuilding of these monuments is still attainable and in few years time, the place will regain its cultural significance and artistic legacy.
