The area surrounding the main temple and a cluster of satellite temples â” the Pashupati Monument Zone â” was declared a World Heritage Site by the Unesco in 1979.
Now headed by a Maoist student leader, they are building a road through a forest in the vicinity of the Pashupatinath temple, regarded as one of the holiest pilgrim sites in the world, where Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and tourists flock regularly.
Barely three months after the Unesco's World Heritage Committee announced that Kathmandu valley's heritage sites, which had been under threat from uncontrolled growth, were out of danger, thanks to measures taken by the government, the temple area is being threatened by the new road.
