Conclusion of main temple renovation (replacment of wooden beams)

This is footage from the upper floors of the temple during the last stage of renovation. The first portion of the video shows planks being laid by experienced technicians from Bungamati, Lalitpur on the floor of the second floor. A few weeks earlier, planks were laid, in a similar manner, on top of the beams that were carefully replaced one by one on the ground floor ceiling.

Brick tiles on the inside floors of the temple were also replaced, and the interior walls were given a fresh coat of paint. Renovation of the main temple structure has officially concluded.

This video provides a good structural overview, from the inside, of how Pagoda-style temples are built.
