Reconstruction of heritage sites sluggish

October 15, 2017

The reconstruction of heritage sites devastated by the 2015 earthquakes is not gaining the expected momentum.

The Kastha-mandap, Hanumandhoka and Dharahara, among others, have yet to be rebuilt.

According to data from the Guthi Sansthan, more than 341 temples and monasteries were destroyed or partially damaged across the country in the disaster. Reconstruction of the damaged temples and monasteries requires an estimated Rs14 billion, said the Guthi Sansthan.

Rebuilding of heritage sites was agreed to be taken forward in different phases.
