The photo blog – “Revealing Patan through Viewfinder” by Rina Maharjan previously here in Everest Uncensored is a good idea for revealing many such world famous heritages of Nepal. Publishing series of Photo blogs to promote such heritages, cultures and traditions would be a nice feature for EU viewers. I believe, this will certainly help to raise some awareness in preserving them for our future generations.

And with such motive, I would like to post few other pictures of the “Deepawali” event that took place later that evening at the Patan Krishan Mandir. This event was organized by Lalitpur Constructors’ Association.

Equipments used:

Nikon D80
AF-S DX Nikkor 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF Nikkor
(The pictures were shot in RAW format and later converted to JPEG using Picasa 3)
