This document is published by UNESCO in the chaos of emergency rescue operation after 25 April 2015 earthquake, the timber members/elements that fell down from damaged or collapsed monuments of Hanuman Dhoka Durbar Square were rapidly piled in different locations. And in repeated clearing activities, that was done in short period of time and in unplanned ways, timber members/elements from damaged or collapsed monuments got mixed up making it quite difficult to separate them according to the monuments to which they belong. Besides due to approaching rainy season it was felt necessary to provide them adequate rain protection. But due to lack of resources, all response activities were slow and insufficient. It was found that the dispersed timber elements/members were piled in more than 16 different locations.

The need to salvage, sort and inventory them was widely voiced. The planning and discussion on the topic continued for months. And only in November 2015, with the general agreement between different stakeholders including the Department of Archaeology, Hanuman Dhoka Museum Development Committee, UNESCO Office in Kathmandu and ICOMOS Nepal, it was decided to carry out the salvaging, sorting and inventorying work of dispersed timber members/elements in Hanuman Dhoka Durbar Square with the support of UNESCO Office in Kathmandu. Due to administrative complexities, the contract was handed over to ICOMOS Nepal with major responsibility of hiring national expert and field reporter for the job and engaging different team members for supportive works including carpenters and labors.
