The earthquakes of 25th April and 12th May, 2015 have caused extensive damage in Nepal. The oldest buildings were especially affected, along with all the sites enlisted as World Heritage by UNESCO. The inventory of these sites confronted mainly by two constraints that enhanced its realization, namely the preventive destruction of the most threatening buildings and the imminent arrival of the monsoon which could otherwise make many of damaged structures disappear forever.

The objectives of this study are thus, to make a record of the extent of damages for easy understanding and overall cost estimation for future work; and also to facilitate the work of restoration and reconstruction by making a record of remaining present structures and identifying general and unique problems. We, thus started to begin by conducting an expertise campaign in the field, articulated as follows:
1. Create color coded maps indicating each and every building’s degree of damage. Assign inventory numbers to all buildings and reference them on the map.
2. Compile a photographic inventory of all the accessible facades to allow future restoration or reconstruction of buildings to their original appearance.
3. A description and a rapid diagnostics of all the buildings in coherence with their names, their structural system,their material of constructions, their relative positioning, the number of floors; and in the case of religious buildings
typology and approximate height. Then finally the nature of the observed damage, possible destruction, the risk of immediate danger and the existence of specific elements to safeguard (especially carved wooden structures). These diagnostics are illustrated furthermore by the photographs of the described problems (with appropriate clichés to distinguish pictures from second earthquake to those from the first).
The inventory of damage here is on one of the UNESCO cites, Changunarayan, located at the northeast of Kathmandu. It was a first temple on the Dolagiri Hill centuries before King Manadeva I. The temple is adorned by various specimens of stones, woods and metal craft of the valley.
