KMC plan goes up in smoke Print E-mail

Kathmandu: The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC)’s plan to facelift 11 ancient temples, stone spouts and traditional inns does not come to fruition even four years after its announcement. The KMC had allocated a budget to improve these structures of cultural importance in the fiscal year 2008/09. Although funds have been allocated in subsequent years for the purpose, nothing has happened, while the budget is frozen every year.

Currently, the KMC has earmarked Rs. 15 million for the maintenance of the cultural heritages. The plan included maintenance of stone pavements on the premises of Machali temple at Teku, Ga: Bahal and reconstruction of Dhaneshwor Mahadev. Likewise, budgets have been allocated in successive years for the maintenance of an inn and renovation of Iku Bahal, Ajima temple, Annapurna temple—built during Shah dynasty in 1893—Jaisidewal, Manju Shree temple, Dillibazar Ganesh temple and conservation of ancient stone spouts. KMC Spokesperson Gyanendra Karki said most of these temples have not been renovated since their construction decades ago.
“These temples are small and scattered in different places and fail to draw proper attention of the authorities. We are trying our best to begin maintenance this year.”
