Region: Asia

Site: Bhaktapur - Nepal

Date: November 2009

In an autumn evening of Nepal, the young crescent Moon shines above Durbar Square of Bhaktapur, a complex of historic temples and monuments in the eastern side of Kathmandu Valley. Bhaktapur was once the capital of Nepal during the great Malla Kingdom until the second half of the 15th century. In this panorama many of the passing people head for a public star party organized by Nepal Astronomical Society and TWAN in this magnificent World Heritage Site. Babak Tafreshi/
