History Unearthed

The first six characters of the second line (“Sambat 753”) tell us that this monument is close to four hundred years old. Unearthed from the ground floor of the Janabahaa Dyo temple during its renovation and cleaning this summer, this stone plaque bears hand-carved inscriptions in Nepal Bhasa using the Nepal Lipi script. Asa Safu Kuthi, a Kathmandu-based private library set up to digitize ancient manuscripts, is now in the process of deciphering the text on this beautiful memorial stone. Photo by Alok Tuladhar.
