Building in Kathmandu

I was fascinated by the great variety of buildings in central Kathmandu. This was another to catch my eye and have my camera trained on it. I was puzzled by the brickwork where the grey building in front of me met the red brick building on the left. It is best viewed enlarged (click on the image).

It seems that the grey building, by its style and ornate decorations, is from an earlier era. Part of this building seems to have collapsed at some stage, possibly during the earthquake of 1934. The red brick building appears to be a more modern building, more functional than beautiful.

Notice the spaghetti tangle of cables in the lower left hand corner of the photo.
