Archive Nepal: Best Photos of the Week

On Friday, we like you to take a look at the photos from an Facebook page ‘Archive Nepal’.

Archive Nepal is a organization whose mission is to encourage the understanding of Nepal’s rich history and culture by curating, digitizing, and improve access to digital resources. This page collects interesting and unseen historic images and shares them with its followers on the platform.

In fact, most of these images are rather rare or previously unseen by the public, as they depict people, places, and fascinating events from the past. For some of the images, the page also includes captions and explanations about the images, providing historical context and background information to quench your thirst for knowledge of the history.

So, if you’d love to see images posted by the Archive Nepal in this week, then make sure to scroll down below.
