Nawalparasi, February 13

Chaudhary Foundation has completed the construction of Shaswatdham in Dumkauli of Nawalparasi in 15 years.

Spread over seven bigaha land, the dham has gurukul, yoga classes, religious museum, digital religious library and a Shiva temple with the facility of vegetarian food.

Claiming that the dham would become the pride of Nawalparasi as well as the country, Chaudhary Group Director Nirwan Chaudhay said his foundation had constructed the site for spiritual and mental peace.

The dham is surrounded by lakes on all sides. Dhams usually are spiritual sites where people visit to gain mental peace as well as for religious purpose.

Dham Chief Executive Officer Ashutosh Chawal said visitors can also watch activities in and around the Hindu temples of Nepal as well as India on a big screen in the dham.

An organic vegetarian food house has also been established on the premises of the dham targeting people who prefer vegetarian and organic meals.

As many as 30 students have been taking classes at the site.

President Bidhya Devi Bhandari is scheduled to inaugurate the site on March 7.

Shree Shree Ravi Shankar, founder of the Art of Living, among other personalities, are slated to attend the inauguration ceremony on March 7.
