Temples & Street Shrines of Nepal’s Kathmandu Valley – ” God Is Alive; Magic Is Afoot”

Nepal’s Kathmandu Valley continues to captivate!  This May was my third visit. I spent a week there – a few days before and three after my Upper Mustang trek.  I revisited most of the UNESCO World Heritage sites to see how they looked twelve years after my 2006 visit and three years after the earthquakes of 2015.

Here are a few photos I took of the gods and buddhas in the temple and street shrines. Perhaps a few later posts will provide the usual verbiage, but in this post I’ll let the images do the talking!

Click on any image to enter the slideshow mode.  For some reason, the images will then look more like they should rather than the fuzzy look they seem to have on this page!



See the following posts for some background on the Kathmandu Valley and its World Heritage sites before and after the Earthquakes of 2015:
