I have no words. I would like to send my sincere and deepest condolence and love to the beautiful country Nepal and to the strong Nepalese people. From Japan.

To the Christians in the comments, please act like a Christian. Instead of being happy for the destruction of the temple, feel despaired. As a Christian, It is a shame that people are talking like this. It's mainly the reason why we get made fun of. This crisis is not something we should be happy about. Act of God? Really now though?

lol @ Christians who think it's good that the temples got destroyed by an 'act of God'. I'm an atheist and I think it's a shame :/

Bhaktapur is such a beautiful place, it was one of my favourite places in Nepal.  So much ancient history that is just blended with the town, not roped off or anything.  Sad.

Nepal please strong and steadfast. In North America we are collecting various resources to send asap. Collections are being made from Masjids, churches and temples. God willing we rebuild your homes, Masjids, churches, and temples.

This is a clear reminder to us in the West that this can happen here as well anytime.

Surviver from Kathmandu here✌️

Trip to there for first time and spend 2 days military camp(tent) after the incident, returned to my hometown (Grandpa-ma's house) after 12 hours of traffic + dangerous mountain scenery on the road. Got back my home in Delhi after few days there.

Nepal's authorities are clearly fabricating the number of people killed and injured by the earthquake. The numbers officially stated to the world, does not include any reports from hundreds of isolated villages in remote valleys and mountainsides, where the earthquake also caused devastating landslides.
In Sindhupalchowk village alone, 5-6 thousand were killed. "Our village hasn't received even a single biscuit", wrote Shasank a resident of Sindhupalchowk, in his heartbreaking appeal as he described the situation there.
What blows my mind is that Gorkha village received their first supply of food today, after 5 days, yet journalists were able to access those places days before trained rescue teams arrived. (Photo posted: the villagers apparently rushed towards the photographer thinking they were the rescue team)
Meanwhile, Nepal's government has been refusing and returning help from a growing number of countries. Currently, the Tribhuvan International Airport is partly shutdown due to the huge amount of relief and rescue material sitting there. Numerous trained relief workers are leaving the country due to untold restrictions and interference from authorities. Non-registered NGO's bringing supplies for the victims are taxed 14% or asked to surrender them to the govt storeroom.
Nepal has been hit hard by a natural calamity but political mismanagement is destroying and ruining whats left of her. Nepal will most definitely rise and recover from this tragedy but she needs good governance and a responsible, transparent and non-corrupt government, led by people with a vision, foresight and wisdom. 
Today is to mourn, but tomorrow is to fight for a new and stronger Nepal.

I thought the temple held up pretty well. They'll fix it in no time. Too bad about the 34000 dead people, though.
