An old door and window next to the « Himalayan Java » coffee shop in Bhaktapur, Nepal. Bhaktapur is a well preserved ancient city in the eastern corner of the Kathmandu valley. It is the home of traditional Newar art and architecture. Everywhere one one looks there are beautifully carved doors and windows.
Unfortunately Bhaktapur was badly hit during the earthquakes of April 2015.
This small piece of medieval Bhaktapur was sketched on a visit in February 2015, just before the earthquake.
