KATHMANDU, June 21: Reconstruction of prehistoric structures destroyed by earthquake still has not gained pace. The archaic heritages shielded with tents and zinc roof-top are still waiting for reconstruction. The reconstruction course of Ranipokhari, Kasthamandap, and Dharahara has been interrupted due to disparity among various authorities.

Several monasteries and temples around Basantapur Hanuman Dhoka area are in reconstruction phase, while others are in due.  Due to non-compliance between concerned authorities, distress lies ahead in fair and genuine structure renovation.  

Prakritik Sano Suwal and SP. Construction have been given the joint contract for the reconstruction of 18th century built Trailokya Mohan Mandir.

Locals are concerned if the architecture of the temples will be ruined since the Archaeology Department had given the contract worth Rs 33.18 million.

Here is the report prepared by Bishnu Lamichhane
