The Boudhanath Stupa

Taken on September 25, 2014, the stupa was being prepped for the Nepali New Year, ushering in the year 2071.

The April 25, 2015 earthquake permanently damaged the structure, a huge crack can be seen from the base to be tip now. I feel blessed to have seen it with my own eyes before the tragedy that befell the nation.

Prayers out to all but I know that in time, Nepal will get back up; more triumphant and more beautiful than ever.
