Bhaktapur is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The ancient capital of Nepal, it is home to numerous architectural and artistic marvels in the form of temples and palaces.

After the 2015 Nepal Earthquake, many of these ancient buildings collapsed along with homes in the neighbourhood, However, many of them are still intact although they may have varying levels of structural damage.
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.
