Notre Dame de Paris will be restored.

Notre-Dame, the iconic cathedral of the medieval times situated on the banks of river Sienne, in the 4th district of Paris was gutted by fire on 15th April 2019.

Notre Dame, a renowned cathedral of the Roman- Catholic affiliation, dedicated to Virgin Mary is one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. It had a wooden roof of oak, tall spire of 91 meters, 10 bells of brass, 2 towers on the west, ornate ceiling and colored glass panes. It is 128 meters long and 48 meters wide. It was built in several stages from 1163 till 1345.

This is not the first time Notre Dame has suffered damage. It was plundered and partially destroyed during the French revolution. The cathedral housed the status of 28 biblical Kings who were all beheaded by the revolutionaries who thought those be of the French Kings. Various artifacts were plundered and many structures destroyed.

The cathedral has been very eventful. He was the same cathedral where Napolean was coroneted, where the burial of the 3 past French presidents were conducted

The world stood aghast at the sight of cathedral burning for 6 hours. Several firefighters tried desperately to prevent the fire from spreading, but could not save the famed spire and the oak ceiling, however, the main structure was not damaged. After the fire was extinguished, the world looked  in horror at what remains of the interior.
