UNESCO’s World Heritage Site purposes to enlist Kathmandu Valley in ‘World Heritage Site in Danger’
UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee (WHC) has purposed to enlist Kathmandu Valley in the List of ‘World Heritage Site In Danger’.
The heritage sites of Kathmandu such as Pashupatinath Temle, Bouddhanath, swyambunath, Patan and Bhaktapur Durbar square and Changunarayan are enlisted in The world’s heritage site. UNESCO had been altering the government to enlist the name of heritage sites as the government was not keeping a good care of it. Before 3 years UNESCO has purposed to enlist Kathmandu Valley as ‘ World Heritage Site in Danger’ but the proposal was not approved.
In the UNESCO’s 43rd session to be held in Baku of Azerbaijan from 30 June to 10 July this year, the WHC will examine 36 nominations for inscription on the World Heritage List, according to UNESCO. Besides the sited of Kathmandu valley, Lumbini, Sagarmatha National Park and Chitwan National park is also enlisted in World Heritage Site and the questions has not ben raised against the.
Besides Kathmandu, the committee has also proposed The Sundarbans in Bangladesh, Ancient City of Nessebar in Bulgaria, Natural and Cultural Heritage of the Ohrid region in Albania/North Macedonia, Babylon in Iraq, and the Islands and Protected Areas of the Gulf of California in Mexico for inscription on the List of World Heritage in Danger.
