A new Nyatapola
Bhaktapur’s Nyatapola Temple, Nepal’s tallest, is being renovated even during the coronavirus lockdown.
Men are working high above on the bamboo scaffolding, using techniques passed down through generations of artisans, to strengthen the structure.
The temples withstood the 1934 megaquake that was 8.3 magnitude, as well as the 7.8M earthquake in 2015. However, it needed structural strengthening and general maintenance.
Local women from Bhaktapur are voluntarily participating in the renovation.
