Report-KYB Conmat

KYB Conmat Tora Batching Plant used for Nepal’s Dharahara Tower reconstruction, which is all set to rise from rubble


Dharahara (Nepali: /kjgjk), also called Bhimsen Tower, was a nine-storey, 61.88-metre-tall (203.0 ft) tower at the centre of Sundhara in Kathmandu. It was built in 1832 by Mukhtiyar (equivalent to

Prime Minister) Bhimsen Thapa under the commission of Queen Lalit Tripura Sundari and was a part of the architecture of Kathmandu recognized by UNESCO.



Project Description


Rising over the surrounding rooftops like a gleaming white candlestick, the Dharahara, or Bhimsen Tower, was crammed with sight-seers when the earthquake hit. More than a hundred people were killed when the tower collapsed, either crushed in the rubble or hit by falling debris. The government of Nepal has now announced that this Kathmandu landmark will rise again, adding to a growing list of monuments restored after the 2015 disaster. Over the coming months, a new Dharahara will rise beside the old tower - today, little more than a ruined plinth - funded by the Nepal Reconstruction Authority, the government body leading the reconstruction effort.

Although aesthetically similar to the old tower, the new tower will be built from modern materials using the latest earthquake-resistant technology, climbing 11 storeys above street level and topping out at 245 feet (75m), compared to 203 feet (62m) for the old tower. The ruined base of the original Dharahara will be preserved as a memorial to those killed in the disaster.
