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.

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

earthquakes are really confusing. this earthquake is much slower than the ones in my city, but killed so many more people. i guess it has something to do with resonance frequency of buildings or something. the ground acceleration in Christchurch must be so fast that the buildings keep relatively still, whereas Japan and Nepal have ones that sway the buildings into collapse.

all old structure must be check by engineers/authority to prevent more disaster if calamity came..provide proper repair or any thing to improve the quality in regard to the strength of the building(in other hand  preserving it's history and others) for the safety of all (what ever is your belief is).  Hope and pray Nepal will recover immediately.
