Kathmandu, January 22
The Kathmandu Metropolitan City has decided to beautify big walls of the roadside in the city government’s jurisdiction with murals that represent traditional art and culture of Nepal.
The city government’s planning commission has begun preparations to paint the murals. The commission’s member Mana Raja Ranjit says the KMC has already allocated budget for the project.
In the first phase, walls of the roadside in Gaushala, Bankali, Maitighar and Sinamangal will be decorated with paintings showing events of Indra Jatra, Handigaunko Jatra and other local festivals.
Earlier, the city had commissioned a seven-member team led by the Nepal Academy of Fine Arts vice-chancellor KK Karmacharya to study various dimensions of the project. It will submit its report within one week and the painting will begin then, according to Ranjit.
