The government said only 15 percent of the country’s world heritage sites were damaged in the April 24 earthquake and aftershocks that have claimed more than 9,000 lives.
Major tourist sites include the Hanumandhoka Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square and Swayambhunath, Bouddhanath, Pashupatinath and Changunarayan areas.
“The heritage sites are affected by the quake and aftershocks but they are not completely ravaged as reported by a section of the media,” said Department of Archaeology director general Bhesh Narayan Dahal.
