Photographer's Note

I took this image in 2014. 15 months later I returned to check what had become of this amazing monument after the natural disaster of April 2015. Similar to Bodhnath stupa
but much more lucky, I found Swayambhunath stupa relatively intact. Just cracks in the white base that, I imagine, must be easier to fix then rebuilding the whole “head”.

In this photo you can clearly see the patterns made with saffron water I wrote about in my last post.

In WS – two images taken after the earthquake.
