Kathmandu's Durbar Square before the earthquake

In light of the 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Nepal, here are a few images I took of Durbar Square when I visited in 2005. These photos show parts of Hanuman Dhoka, the complex structures of the Royal Palace, which spreads over five acres.

Several of the buildings in the square have collapsed due to the earthquake. There are currently over 5,000 reported deaths and over 11,000 people injured.

Here are a few ways you can donate to the earthquake relief effort.
