About the Author

Niels Gutschow, born in 1941 in Hamburg as the son of an architect, first came to Nepal in 1962, studied architecture in Darmstadt and returned to Bhaktapur in 1971 as a member of a team to restore the Pujarima_h. In the 1970s his research focused on Urban Space and Ritual; later he shifted toward architectural surveys which materialised in two major publications: The Nepalese Caitya. 1500 Years of Buddhist Votive Architecture in the Kathmandu Valley (1997) and Architecture of the Newars. A History of Building Typologies and Details in Nepal (2011). For a period of 45 years his attention has been strongly linked to the seasonal festivals of Bhaktapur, of which this publication presents ten major events. Gutschow lives at Tahaja near Bhaktapur and Abtsteinach, Germany. Since 2003 he has been an Honorary Professor at the South Asia Institute of Heidelberg University.
