Photo Of The Day – Kathmandu Sunset #5

Title: Kathmandu Sunset #5

Location: Dharahara Tower, Kathmandu, Nepal, Asia (27°42’2.02″N  85°18’42.86″E)

Description: Destroyed in the earthquake of 2015, Dharahara Tower was the tallest building in Kathmandu at the time. It had survived a number of previous earthquakes (one of which removed two stories at its top) but ultimately fell in the 7.9 magnitude earthquake that left over 9000 dead in Nepal.

Plans now call for a rebuilding of the tower at the same location to begin this year. It would be great to see the tower rebuilt and to enjoy the magnificent views it afforded once again.
