Surya Bhakta Nakarmi is the owner, designer and technical officer of Funny Temple, an amusement ride in the Central Zoo, Jawalakhel. With just a certificate degree from Thapathali Technical Institute, Nakarmi built the ride from scratch, based on “trial and error” method. He expounds on his rollercoaster journey.

How did you get the idea to make Funny Temple?


I was employed at the airport, and frequently went on foreign trips. In Bangkok, I rode a ride and it inspired me to make one. I went to Bangkok several times to study the design.
