A special ritual is being conducted at Swayambhu World Heritage Monument zone (Nepal) to inaugurate the Mangal Bahaudwar Caitya, which was collapsed completely by the 2015 earthquakes.
UNESCO excavated and rebuilt this Caitya (Stupa) and safeguarded its artifacts in collaboration with the Department of Archaeology and the Federation of Swayambhu Management and Conservation and with financial support of the Chinese Hainan Province Cihang Foundation and Fok Ying Tung Foundation.
During the process, it worked closely with the local community and priests to rebuild the site and to restore this vital monument for generations to come.
