TCN to provide wood for Kasthamandap reconstruction

firewoodKathmandu / Nov 2: The Timber Corporation of Nepal (TCN) Ltd has agreed to provide 17,000 cubic feet timber for the purpose of reconstruction of the historic monument Kasthamandap which was damaged by the April 2015 earthquake.

Kasthamandap Reconstruction Committee chair Rajesh Shakya and Corporation’s general manager Raju Laudari signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to this end.

The reconstruction of Kasthamandap, which means ‘wood pavilion’, needs specially prepared timber. Generally, timber measuring 10 feet is available in the market, but the structure requires 38 feet long timber for renovation.

The committee is working with a target of completing reconstruction of the historic and cultural heritage within the next two years.

The monument is believed to be built by Laxmi Narsingh Malla in the 12th century from wood of a single tree. RSS
