This document is published by UNESCO which has commissioned post-disaster rescue excavations at earthquake-damaged monuments within the Kathmandu Valley UNESCO World Heritage Site, It is continuing a mission initiated last year aimed at restoring Nepal’s cultural heritage and together with a team of international and national experts from the Department of Archaeology, Government of Nepal, and Durham University, UK, is undertaking excavations at the Jagannath and Gopinath Temples in Hanumandhoka Durbar Square, to provide a better understanding of their history and the condition of their foundations.

Previous year UNESCO led a team from the National Research Institute for Cultural Properties in Tokyo that undertook architectural evaluations of the two-tiered Jagannath Temple. Built for Vishnu as the ‘Lord of the Universe’, with its outer shrines dedicated to Surya, Siva, Ganesh and Bhagavati, some historians believe it to be one of the oldest temples in HanumandhokA.
