Durbar is partly affected by earthquake. However, the nearby temples are completely destroyed. All those monuments have not been reconstructed yet. However, charm of Durbar remains intact. Thank god. People were safe.

Even though the buildings have fallen, partially fallen or are propped up it is still a place to see. The houses are gone and people are living in tin sheds - this is sad to see.
