Nepal’s capital is still rebuilding their world heritage.
The devastating earthquake of 2015 seriously damaged many temples and palaces of the Kathmandu valley in Nepal. Rebuilding works are slowing down, because Nepal and UNESCO have different views of the historical authenticity of the world heritage.
The temple where hippies loved to sing their Hare Krishna songs does not exist anymore. Only the stepped base of the Maju Dega has remained. At other temples, support beams are clamped in the brick walls.
The roof of the massive Taleju with its three-story pagoda is scaffolded. At the Tribhuvan Museum, the white plaster peels off, on the canopy grass and bushes proliferate. No one has dared to go up since the big quake.
It was 11:56 when the earth shook on April 25, 2015 in Kathmandu. The seismographs showed the value of 7.8 on the Richter scale.
