UNESCO very concerned about inappropriate rebuilding of historic structures, in particular Ranipokhari
PDF File Size: 26 KB | Download   
Since the very beginning of the reconstruction, UNESCO has stressed in meetings
and letters addressed to the Minister of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation and National Reconstruction Authority, the importance of changing bidding procedures for historical monuments. Awarding the contract to the cheapest bidder is inappropriate when it comes to rebuilding heritage, with major risk of destroying the uniqueness of the Kathmandu Valley World Heritage Site. As a result, the cultural tourism potential of Nepal might be negatively affected.

Such practice raises serious questions on the creditability of future heritage
rebuilding in the Kathmandu Valley, including major sites such as Kasthamandap
and Majudega of the Hanumandhoka Durbar Square Monument zone.
