Trip Planner: Asia / Nepal / Central Region / Bagmati Zone / Kathmandu Valley / Kathmandu / Bhimsen Tower
Once the tallest tower in Nepal, Bhimsen Tower reminds visitors of the Nepalese Earthquake in 2015, which destroyed almost all of the 62 m (203 ft) structure, a harrowing symbol of the power of nature. Once resembling an islamic minaret, the tower's remains will likely be reconstructed to draw back the tourists it once attracted, though this time more earthquake resistant. The military orginally used the tower to watch over the city, and bugles (a brass instrument) could be heard during events of national importance.

it was very beautiful view tower of kathmandu valley but damaged by devastating earthquake in 2015 Apprile more »
Not much left after devastating earthquake which took thousands of life in Nepal but the remains can be seen how historical it is
