The Boudhanath Area Development Committee organised a purification ritual at Boudhanath Stupa on Friday. The world heritage site had sustained damages in the upper portion and the dome structure during last year’s earthquake.

The reconstruction work of the Stupa that started in May last year is expected to be completed by 22 November. An estimated Rs 230 million was spent in the process.
