Rani Pokhari Then And Now
Rani Pokhari Then amd Now
It’s not just that Nepal which was once devastated by a large scale Earth Quake which ruined many building in Kathmandu. Right after the incidence, Nepal government preserved old heritage sites through continues innovations. which are still carried out even today.
If you’ve been to Kathmandu and have witnessed the Rani Pokhari (a small pond) located at the heart of the Capital, it will tell you it’s own history. We don’t need to get inside the pond nor do we you have to read a lot about it to get to know this pond. During the last major earth quake, many buildings in the Capital got demolished and the Earth Quake took many death tolls. But Nepal Government continues, even today, to rebuild what was lost. Year around, you can read about news on the things such as construction, renovation, etc.
Here are two different photos of the place taken from similar angles at different time.

Nepal Rani Pokhari Now
Moral of these two pictures, to me, is that take the time to see things. Do not rush and as for unlucky days such as the Earth Quakes, It is beyond our control. Even in developed countries, predicting Earth Quake is a joke.
This much for now, more will be coming soon with other pictures. Enjoy your life and take the time to see things around you.
