Nine experts on conservation discuss and present their views of twenty-nine years of international participation in restoring ancient temples in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley. These discussions, illustrated with drawings and photographs, focus on the Sulima Temple in the Patan Darbar Square, possibly the oldest intact multi-tier pagoda in the Kathmandu Valley.
