KATHMANDU: US Ambassador to Nepal, Randy Berry on Thursday inaugurated the restoration of the Kyalimana Dyo Pavilion in Kirtipur.

To restore and seismically strengthen the Khyalimana Dyo Pavilion, the U.S. Embassy provided a grant to the Rabindra Puri Foundation, which will work closely with Khyali Dyo Guthi to manage the restoration work at this site.

Cultural restoration projects like this – and many others in Kathmandu and Patan Durbar square and across Nepal – are a true testament to our vibrant 75 years of US-Nepal relations, Ambassador Berry said.

“This project will extensively engage local community members and leaders. Our grantee Rabindra Puri Foundation will work closely with Khyali Dyo Guthi to manage the restoration work at this site,” the Ambassador said.

This project, he added, will not only restore the Pavilion and host the “God of Love” but also revive the intangible cultural practices of local communities.

The US Embassy’s ongoing Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) projects have supported the restoration and preservation work of 26 other projects throughout Nepal.

These cultural preservation efforts serve as a symbol of both the strong, vibrant partnership between our nations as well as our respect for Nepal’s diverse and rich heritage, the US Embassy said.

To restore and seismically strengthen the Khyalimana Dyo Pavilion, the U.S. Embassy has provided 1 crore 77 Lakh Nepali Rupees in the grant.
