As Kathmandu Metropolitan City is celebrating World Heritage Day with fanfare, the heritage sites of Kathmandu are waiting reconstruction. The reconstruction stalled due to activism, politicization and local disputes.

Thanks to Rohit Ranjit, Lalitpur has proved that local community, local bodies and development partners can work together to restore heritage sites.
