Nepal’s Silk Roads: “Ancient Highway” Needs Protection, Mapping Of Historical Sites
PDF File Size: 316 KB | Download   
The more than 2000-year-old historic Silk Roads bring different images to mind. These are often of camel caravans carrying silk and spices on dusty roads, lonely deserts, and exotic towns. The network of trade routes across land and sea that spanned much of the globe from prehistoric times until the present day represents an important corridor for cultural exchanges between East and West. Along these roads, people of many different cultures, religions and languages met, exchanged goods, ideas, technology and influenced each other. To safeguard what is believed to be the world’s “leading trans-national highway”, UNESCO urged different stakeholders to focus on protecting and investing into the documentation of the innumerable historical sites scattered along the route. “UNESCO assists the Department of Archeology to look for evidences subsisting along the heritage corridors within Nepal, which adequately reflect what the Silk Roads generated for the region’s cultural significance”, says Christian Manhart, UNESCO Representative to Nepal. Throughout the centuries, hundreds of sites and monuments with both cultural and historic value have been developed in different regions alongside the Silk Roads. From ancient palaces in cities, to ruins in remote, inaccessible deserts, each of these sites need to be preserved and systematically documented in order to assess their authenticity and integrity.
