The earthquake struck Nepal has announced its intent to reopen all heritage sites in Kathmandu Valley to public, as reported by ANI.
This initiative is being undertaken with a view to boost tourism.
The sites set to be reopened include the Durbar squares or ‘noble courts’, which were badly damaged. However, UNESCO has expressed concern over safety of reopening the sites.
More than 8,000 people were killed in the April earthquake, and destruction was widespread. UNESCO warns people in a press statement to be extra cautious at the sites.
Security will be in place, tourists will be given guided tours and signboards will indicate specified routes to cause minimal disturbance to structures.
