PDF File Size: 2.69 MB | Download   
The World Heritage property of the Kathmandu Valley comprises seven distinct, monument zones including the Hindu temples of Pashupati and Changu Narayan; the Buddhist sites of Swoyambhu and Bauddnath and the palace squares of Hanuman Dhoka, Patan and Bhaktapur. The World Heritage property was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1979 and the List of World Heritage in Danger in 2003 following which an Integrated Management Plan (IMP) was developed and finalized in 2007. The IMP clearly defined the property across all seven monument zones and ensembles and also clearly defined the buffer zone. The property was removed from the List of World Heritage in Danger in July 2007 (Decision 31 COM 8C.3). However, in 2007 construction of a new road, supported by the Asian Development Bank, commenced – crossing through the Pashupati monument zone. The road construction was abandoned after threats to the property became evident and the World Heritage Committee, at its 32nd session adopted decision 32 COM 7B.76, requesting the State Party to mitigate the impact of the proposed road construction. Since 2008, following protests by those involved with the IMP to the highest levels of the Government, and responses to the proposal by the World Heritage Centre and ICOMOS, construction of the road has remained halted and mitigation measures are being developed.
