Description: Kathmandu ( Nepal ) ( 1979 ). The monuments of the Kathmandu Valley illustrate Nepalese art at its height. UNESCO launched a campaign for the safeguarding of the monuments in 1979, threatened by pollution, urban sprawl and the build - up of motor traffic. The monuments' inscription on the World Heritage List and the minting of a commemorative medal also in 1979 accompanied the campaign. The medal was designed by A. Chitrakar and engraved by Max Léognany.
