From Lumber to Holy Beam

Remember the lumber from the Jamacho forest ( After seasoning the wood by immersing it in boiling oil to give it more strength and after giving proper shape and size to the logs, this is how they stack up now, ready to go into the main Janabahaa Dyo temple to replace the beams that have worn out with age.

The carvings are the names, in Nepal Lipi, of people who donated cash to pay for the carpentry, masonry and other works involved in the renovation.
