Rebuilding of Ranipokhari from April 24

Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — The reconstruction of Ranipokhari is to start from April 24, coming Sunday.

The 25 April Earthquake a year ago had totally destroyed the Balgopaleswor Temple situated in the mid-a part of Ranipokhari.

The KMC is putting its efforts to beautify Ranipokhari with the temple after around 360 years, according to Spokesperson of Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) Gyanendra Karki,. The KCM has put forth a plan to remove dirt and mud piled up in Ranipokhari which has not been cleaned up since long.

“The human resource required for the clean-up of mud and dirt cannot be ascertained as it has not been done since long”, said Spokesperson Karki.

A budget of Rs 120 million has been allocated for the reconstruction. President Bidya Devi Bhandari on January 16 had inaugurated the Ranipokhari reconstruction campaign.

It is noted that the Ranipokhari has possessed around 60 ropanis of land. The pond has occupied 40 ropanis.

The beautification plans include installing electric lighting, construction of rallying around the pond for the protection of the pond, planting green saplings, setting up musical fountains and construction of rounding pavement.

It is informed that the entire works will be completed within six months of the beginning of construction.
