Kalmochan Temple, devoted to the Hindu god Lord Vishnu the preserver, is a part of the Thapathali Durbar complex. It was built in the Moghul Kathmandu-Gothic architecture style and has Mughal and Nepali art. The temple is also known as Janga Hiranya Hemnarayan mandir. It was built by Rana prime minister Jung Bahadur Rana in mid nineteeth century. The April 2015 earthquake of Nepal reduced this temple to rubble. It was completely destroyed. However, reconstruction is being done and the temple is gradually taking it’s shape.
This weekend our photowalk was at Kalmochan Temple. Here are a few selected photographs taken by the participants of photowalk, followed by a short video shot during event.
