Initiative to manage heritage sites launched

To enhance management of heritage sites in Bhutan and Nepal, the ‘South Asian Heritage Sites Management Initiative’ was launched in the capital today. The five-year project is worth USD 60,000. The initiative is a collaboration between the Department of Culture and Dzongkha Development and the UNESCO/Korea Funds-in-Trust. The Korea Funds-in-Trust is a project that supports UNESCO’s efforts through voluntary contributions from the Republic of Korea.

According to Chief Architect of the Department of Culture and Dzongkha Development Yeshi Samdrup, the project will focus on four critical sites that are Jambay Lhakhang and Tamzhing Lhakhang in Bumthang, Trong village in Zhemgang, and another sacred site, which has yet to be identified.
