KATHMANDU, APRIL 24
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has inaugurated the historical Dharahara, amid a programme in Sundhara, Kathmandu.
Reconstruction of the monument -- which was damaged by the April 2015 earthquake with only its base remaining -- has been coordinated by the National Reconstruction Authority.
The inauguration ceremony has been organised on the eve of the sixth memorial day of the Gorkha earthquake which occurred on April 25, 2015.
Reconstruction of the tower had begun in October 2018. However, Dharahara's reconstruction picked up speed after its foundation was laid in December 2018.
Dharahara was built by the first prime minister of Nepal, Bhimsen Thapa.
