Bhaktapur

These images pre-date the devastating April 2015 earthquake which caused widespread damage and loss of life across the Kathmandu Valley, especially here in Bhaktapur.

Bhaktapur is of three ancient city-states nestled in the Kathmandu Valley, the others being Patan (today, Lalitpur) and Kathmandu itself.

These images were taken with Nikon D300 using RAW format, and are available for licensing.
