Ancient view of Kathmandu

Time always goes on and it brings the changes. It seems Kathmandu city has changed a lot. It is being more crowded and unplanned. Below are some collections of Kathmandu city before 70 years. They were taken from different sources. I am very thankful to the person who ever had captured and collected those images.

Special thanks for Manish Shakya for giving an idea to collect all those images. Next time I will try to collect all recent images of below listed locations.

1. Bhadrakali area 70 years before

  6. Kurye olarak hizmet veren kişiler, bulundukları lokasyondaki her adrese en kısa sürede ulaşma yolunu bilirler. Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.

    Those places like: New Road, Bir Hospital,Tudikhel, Thapathali certainly have concrete jungle these days. I would have only imagined such a peace and tranquility ever existed once upon a time. Hat’s off to Manish Shakya’s collection, that looked so real and as if those places could explain a lot of stories.
