The 7.8-magnitude earthquake that rocked Nepal left horrors in its path. And it's not over yet.

A powerful earthquake of magnitude 7.8 struck central Nepal on Saturday morning, killing more than 1,800 people and touching off a deadly avalanche on Mount Everest. The earthquake hit Nepal with devastating force less than 50 miles from the capital, Kathmandu, causing tremors in northern India as well.

On Sunday, an aftershock measuring 6.7 struck the same area. 

The government has declared a state of emergency in the affected areas. According to sources, 1,800 people died in the quake, and more than 1,700 are injured. At least 539 people were killed in the Kathmandu valley. And a massive amount of people are still trapped beneath rubble.

Historic buildings and temples were destroyed. The most breathtaking architectural loss was the nine-story Dharahara Tower, which was built in 1832 on the orders of the queen. Below are images from the region of the immediate aftermath of one of the most powerful earthquakes to strike Nepal in decades.
