Kathmandu Valley Preservation Trust
The Kathmandu Valley Preservation Trust seeks to restore, conserve, and rebuild the precious monuments of Kathmandu Valley creating a best practice model for their peers, and providing documentation for all of their work. Their mission is to safeguard the extraordinary and threatened architectural heritage of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal
The negative impact of today’s development pressures poses a threat, not only to individual monuments but also to the future of public space and urban life in the valley, at large. Over the past two decades, they have saved over 55 historic buildings, which include mandirs (temples), step-wells, monasteries, palaces, and homes, and has launched three major campaigns for preservation on an urban scale. They collaborate with community groups, local and international specialists, educational institutions, and the Department of Archaeology of the Government of Nepal. The KVPT office in Patan Durbar Square has become a resource center for historic architecture and urbanism in Nepal, and their team initiates and supports historical research and technical training programs.
They are currently running multiple projects but their appeal is for one of those projects that does not have sufficient funding. And with a little support from your end, they would be able to restore a historical monument, which was destroyed in the earthquake of 2015.
Where will the funds go?
The funds raised through this platform will be utilized in the reconstruction of the Char Narayan Temple, which is one of the major temples in Patan Durbar Square, a cultural heritage that represents the ancient art and architecture of our country. It would be a great pleasure if we could help conserve something so important.
