As updated earlier, the epicenter is located in Southern part of the Kathmandu valley. Kirtipur is one of the ancient city of Kathmandu valley. The Kirtipur area was also devastated by 2015 Nepal earthquake. The current tremor with epicenter at Kirtipur is an aftershock of the 2015 Gorkha earthquake. The epicenter is located south of Mahadev temple and Newa Lahana in Kirtipur.

Light to weak tremor was felt in Nagarjun, Tokha, Chandragiri, Kirtipur, Budhanilakantha, Gokarneshwor and parts of Bhaktapur areas. The tremor was relatively felt stronger in Kathmandu and Patan district than the Bhaktapur area. No injuries or damage reports have been received.
