In 1997 Bhaktapur, along with 6 other sites in Kathmandu valley, was inscribed as a monumental zone in a UNESCO World Heritage site of Kathmandu Valley. In 2003 UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee inscribed Kathmandu Valley and its monumental zones on its list of World Heritage in Danger, giving its reason as ‘Newari Architectural Design, which has gradually disappeared due to uncontrolled urban development’. Among contributing factors to this ‘uncontrolled urban developments’ are population growth, economic and social changes, increase pollution, looting and illegal building activities. Koto Kanno, Head of the UNESCO office in Kathmandu states that ‘in the Kathmandu Valley,the surroundings are as much part of the cultural heritage as the monuments themselves. Yet people are largely unaware of the treasures right their in front of them’. This report aims to study the past and present working of World Heritage restoration and maintenance scheme in Bhaktapur, Nepal, in order to understand impacts of heritage conservation and tourism on the urban poor. During our stay in Nepal, the essence of ‘Nepal’ came across strongly as being more than just its architecture and culture, the very components that make Kathmandu Valley known around the world for its ‘living museums’. The strength of its people, their highly sophisticated social structure and its reflections on the daily lives and living environments were seen as opportunities for building and expanding a strong foundation for the region’s growth.
