Kathmandu: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has inaugurated the reconstructed Dharahara which was devasted by the earthquake in 2015.
From the outside, the tower looks like an old-fashioned 11-storey structure, but the inner structure has 22 well-equipped structures. Its height is 83.85 meters from the ground, as per the National Reconstruction Authority.
Even though the Dharahara has been inaugurated, not all the reconstruction work has been completed. So public are still not allowed to go to see the Dharahara.
After the 2072 earthquake, the government set up an economic fund and launched the ‘I will build my Dharahara’ campaign. According to the National Reconstruction Authority, the reconstruction of the tower is estimated to cost more than Rs 3 billion and the government will bear the insufficient amount from the fund.
