Buddhist monks perform prayers to purify Boudhanath Stupa

Posted by Anup Baral November 19th, 2015 :
One year after a deadly earthquake struck Nepal, the prime minister announced the country is rebuilding some of the damaged heritage sites. They include temples, monuments and a UNESCO heritage site. On April 25, 2015, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake killed 9,000 people and damaged hundreds of historic structures. Nepali officials have said fully rebuilding the country’s architectural heritage and the 600,000 homes destroyed by the quake will take years. But this week Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Oli announced the government will start.
The Boudhanath stupa is under reconstruction procedure as it was badly damaged in the earthquake last year.
