Video: The Temples of Kathmandu in 180º

Kathmandu is home to dozens of unique and wonderful Buddhist and Hindu temples. In fact, these striking structures are some of the most popular places for foreign visitors to explore when visiting Nepal’s capital city. But thanks to this video, you don’t have to travel there to soak up a bit of the local flavor. The clip shares some of the more popular and visually stunning of these temples, and allows us to pan around to check out the area a bit more fully. The video gives the viewer the ability to move the camera around by as much as 180º, which is a nice gimmick of course. But one has to wonder in the age of 360º cameras why are we limited to just this view? Still, the short film is worth a look, particularly if you haven’t been to Kathmandu before.
