Mr. Mike Scholey, who was a teacher at Budhanilkantha School while late Crown Prince Dipendra was still a young student, has been posting (again) some delicious b/w images from 1979-1981. Since I had nothing better to do in the lab, I just thought I might retouch them using adobe lightroom and re-post them in a more presentable manner here. 

Check more of his pics [HERE].

And note, feel free to distribute, use and publish these photos but do give credits to Mr. Mike Scholey and not this website. I am just basically downloading them through fb, editing them a bit and then posting them up, so madeinepal.com isn't exactly the correct source (I meant you gundrukpost).

The front gate. Still looks the same.
Right after the main gate, Pale-Ghar to the left. Hawa-ghar blocked out.
