Heritages Sites To Be Opened From August 17

BHAKTAPUR, NEPAL - APRIL 26: A Buddha statue is surrounded by debris from a collapsed temple in the UNESCO world heritage site of Bhaktapur on April 26, 2015 in Bhaktapur, Nepal. A major 7.8 earthquake hit Kathmandu mid-day on Saturday, and was followed by multiple aftershocks that triggered avalanches on Mt. Everest that buried mountain climbers in their base camps. Many houses, buildings and temples in the capital were destroyed during the earthquake, leaving thousands dead or trapped under the debris as emergency rescue workers attempt to clear debris and find survivors.

June 3,2015: The Government is planning to reopen the historical buildings and monuments to the public from August 17.

The historical sites like Hanumandhoka Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Swayambhunath, Bouddhanath, Pashupatinath, and Changunarayan were closed to the public after the earthquake in April 25 and its aftershocks.

The numbers of tourists arriving in Nepal decreases when some foreign media said that the historical sites in Nepal are completely damaged. The concerned authorities visited the sites and it was not completely damaged.

According to Director General of the Department of Archeology, Bhesh Narayan Dahal the sites are affected by the quake but are not completely damaged.

Rubbles were removed by various government and non-government teams, in coordination with the locals. Dahal added the sites will be reopened in a couple of months.
