The continuation of Patan’s Kartik Naach in question
KATHMANDU, Oct 15: The existence of Mahaa: Dhal: Nani Aagamghar, used by the Priest of Krishna Mandir, Purna Chandi Temple, and teachers of Kartik Dance is in danger. Members of Mahaa: Dhal: Nani Aagamghar Guthi, organized a press meet at the premises of Mahaa: Dhal: Nani Aagamghar, Lalitpur to inform about deteriorating state of Aagamghar due to the lack of proper vision.
Speaking at the press meet member of Aagamghar Guthi, Rabindra Sharma stated that due to the lack of proper action in the preservation of Aagamghar had caused the heritage to lose its cultural importance. “Due to the negligence in the renovation of Aagamghar, regular puja of Purna Chandi Temple and Krishna Temple are also being affected,” he said.
Another member of Guthi stated, “One day Kartik Naach will be no more displayed if we don’t protect the Aagamghar. If there won’t be Aagamghar for the necessary puja and rituals, how can we perform Kartik Naach?”
