Dharahara construction in final stagesThe new Dharahara is scheduled to be inaugurated on April 24, coinciding with Loktantra Diwas.
Construction works of the Dharahara have reached the final stages.
On Sunday, workers were seen installing the gajur atop the 72-meter tall monument.
The reconstruction of the nine-storied Dharahara, destroyed in the 2015 Gorkha Earthquake, had started in December 2019 after Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli laid the foundation stone.
The total cost of the reconstruction, which extends over 42.2 ropanis, is estimated at Rs 3.48 billion.
The government is planning to inaugurate the newly constructed Dharahara on April 24, coinciding with Loktantra Diwas.
