Patan Durbar Square opens to public

The Patan Durbar Square , that was closed following the April 25 Earthquake, has been opened to the public from Thursday.

Prior to this, Minister for Physical Planning and Transport Bimalendra Nidhi had visited the heritage site and pointed out the need of removing the debris and demolishing the damaged infrastructures from the premises for space.

Though the Durbar Square was opened for public, it would take a week to open the museum, said Information Officer at the Museum, Suresh Man Lakhe.

Likewise, the Bagalamukhi and the Kumbheswor Temples are also opened for public from today as they were also closed since April 25.

According to him, Charnarayan, Hari Shankar Temple and Manimandap pati were completely damaged while Bishwanath, Bhimsen and Jyasideg Temples are partially damaged in the quake.

Education Minister Chitralekha Yadav visited the temples and offered pooja there.
