KATHMANDU, Feb 24: The Deepyakhan Guthi (Devi Naach Trust), which was earlier registered in the name of an individual, has been brought into the ownership of the Guthi (trust) once again.
To celebrate this achievement, the Kilagal Guthi in Kathmandu organized a 'puja' ceremony at Manakamana Temple in Gorkha district on Saturday. According to Indra Maharjan, president of Deepyakhan Promotion and Conservation Committee, the Guthi house located in Kilagal, Kathmandu, was brought into the ownership of the Guthi again after years of attempts.
Now, the Guthi house will be reconstructed, according to the Guthi.
Likewise, Bidhya Sundar Shakya, mayor of Kathmandu Metropolitan City, said that Deepyakhan is an important part of Indrajatra, so the metropolis is committed in preserving the Guthi house.
In the meantime, the Kathmandu Metropolis has allocated a total of Rs 10 million for the reconstruction of the Guthi house. A total of 200 Guthi members and devotees worshipped at the Manakamana Temple to celebrate the return of the Guthi house.
