Nepal’s Boudhanath Buddhist stupa located in the country's capital city, Kathmandu, was badly damaged following the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck the area last year.
Almost immediately after the earthquake, a reconstruction committee was formed to renovate the damaged stupa.
In less than two years of painstaking work by a group of highly skilled artisans, craftsman and masonries, the reconstruction work was finally completed and the stupa is back to its former glory.
India based Tai Situ Rinpoche has funded the major portion of the reconstruction work including a donation of 26 kilograms of gold towards the reconstruction efforts.
Table Talk invites a member of Boudha stupa reconstruction committee, Mr. Bhu Dhondup to discuss the challenges and the process of Boudha stupa reconstruction work.
