Tarkeshwar awaits proper conservation and promotion
Due to lack of promotion, the religious, historical, touristic and cultural heritages of Tarkeshwar Municipality are in shade. Some of the heritages here are said to be on the verge of disappearance.
Tarkeshwar Mayor Rameswor Bohora said, “The living historical heritages have been ignored due to lack of wider publicity. The municipality now has laid high emphasis on the conservation of heritage within the area. Tarkeshwar Mahadev, Manamaiju, Panchmane, Bhuwaneswori and Dharmasthali Mahakal are the main heritage sites here.
Tarkeshwar Mahadev Temple has come in a state of disappearance owing to lack of conservation and publicity efforts. The temple is considered to be a shrine of Hindu religious people. The iron-made ladder on the way to the temple has also come to the sorry state of affairs. The 2015 earthquake had also caused damages to the physical structures here including huts of saints. Consequently, the civilisation of Tarkeshwar has come into relegation.
Likewise, historical Jeetfurfedi located at the central part of Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park is linked with Nuwakot’s Okharpauwa. Once upon a time, the area was popular as a key trade transit. Now there is nothing.
Chief Administrative Officer of Tarkeshwar Municipality Hira Mani Subedi stressed the need for proper publicity of the historical heritage. He said, “Promotion of this area could have developed the place as an attractive tourism destination. Buwaneswori is situated in the northern part of the historical Panchmane Bhanjyang at Tarkeshwar Municipality. The temple is important from natural, environmental and tourism viewpoints.”
One can enjoy the panoramic sightseeing of the entire Kathmandu Valley from Kavresthali, Tarkeshwar Municipality-2. It has a big peace park as well. It is a spectacular religious and touristic heritage. Stakeholders said that the conservation and wider publicity of such heritages would contribute to the promotion of tourism.
