Temple under reconstruction Subedi, Prakash

Description

Reconstruction of temples following traditional techniques and using traditional materials to reflect their authentic architecture as well as local demands has been common feature during the post 2015 reconstruction. This is in contrast to the reconstruction of temples after the last big earthquake of 1934, when traditional elements of many temples were lost during reconstruction. Taken during the 2nd phase of fieldwork conducted by the research team based at Social Science Baha in Kathmandu, Nepal, as part of the SSHRC Partnership Development Grant, ‘Expertise, Labour and Mobility in Nepal’s Post-Conflict, Post-Disaster Reconstruction’.
