KATHMANDU: The works on construction of a war museum have begun at Batauli, an old cultural city in Rupandehi.

According to Shiva Raj Subedi, mayor of Butwal Sub-Metropolis, the metropolis has started building a war museum as an attempt to preserve the cultural glory of the town.

“Both the cultural values of Batauli and historic importance of Jitgadhi will be reflected in the museum to be constructed at Butwal Sub-Metropolis,” Mayor Subedi said laying the foundation stone for the construction of Jitgadhi-Batauli War Museum on Wednesday.

He added that the museum will reflect the Nepal-Anglo War at Jitgadi Fortress.

Jitgadhi has also been regarded as the center of tourism.

Subedi revealed that a new tourism circle would be built linking other small cities and a ring road in Butwal.

The construction of museum also falls under the integrated urban development perspective forwarded by the Sub-Metropolis. The perspective has been framed by envisioning the population after 50 years.

The museum is being constructed at the cost of Rs 68.2 million.
