The Sulima Pagoda
Enrich Theophile and Niels Gutschow (ed)
Orchid Press, 2003
Restoration of Kathmandu Valley's numerous historical buildings has always been subject to controversy: what to save, how to do it. In this book, nine experts on conservation present their views, focusing on the recent restoration of the Sulima Temple in Patan Darbar Square-possibly the oldest intact multitier pagoda in the Valley. Complete with period photos, comparison shots and design sketches and paintings, The Sulima Pagoda has a lot to teach about our architectural heritage and its preservation.
