Relief tents have been erected in the squares and other open spaces for those who have lost their homes. These photos show a square which has two standing temples amidst a lot of rubble. One cannot enter these temples yet for fear of structural damage/ a violent aftershock. One can see two Chinese Red Cross relief tents in the square between the temples.
