On June 23, 2007 a
group of Prof. Shashidhar Belbase's students studying ethnomathematics from
Kathmandu University went to Sankhu, about 20km from Kathmandu. What will be
presented here will be some of the work produced by the class.

Sankhu was once an important post on the trading route
between Katmandu and Lhasa and although the town’s flower has faded, you can
still see many signs of its former prosperity. Although many traditional signs
aspects of Newari life continue here, the most persuasive reason to visit is
the beautiful Vajrayoggini Temple complex a 2km walk northeast of town.
