NEPAL HERITAGE DOCUMENTATION PROJECT is supported by the Arcadia Fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin and provides an open access approach to extensive heritage documentation in Nepal. The project itself straddles Germany and Nepal. In Germany, the NHDP is run collaboratively by the Heidelberg Centre for Transcultural Studies (HCTS) and the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (HAdW). The project’s key partners and representatives in Nepal include the Department of Archaeology of the Government of Nepal and the Saraf Foundation of Himalayan Traditions and Culture.
FEATURED SEARCH AND HIGHLIGHTS
Alongside our attempts to cover the old Royal City of Patan, we have defined certain ‘clusters’ of monuments that are characterised by a certain historical, social or ritual importance and connectivity. It is important to point out that the ‘borders’ of these clusters have been defined on the basis of these criteria, and do not represent any existing administrative or planned boundaries.
