The beautiful and historic Dharahara also known as Bhimsen stambha was destroyed by the earthquake but still has its remains where once it stood all high and mighty. Nice place to walk around and see the history lying although it is quite sad. Hopefully it gets rebuilt to tell its story.

There is little left of the original lofting monument, and although there are plans to rebuild, it will never be the same with the same history.

Unfortunately this famous attraction is totally damaged by the earthquake 2015 and the government has not started yet the reconstruction. You can visit it as you are close to the Durbar square.

The earthquake of last year ruined its beauty. Its no more now in the existence, it turned into ashes. Once upon a time you could see the whole Kathmandu from its top.

We went here to see the half structure left after earthquake. It was a huge structure from where after climbing the stairs you could see the whole Kathmandu. But now it's gone.
