Tirtha Dhar Tuladhar: The Living Legend

Renowned social worker Tirtha Dhar Tuladhar was cremated in accordance with Newa Buddhist tradition today, after Theravada Buddhist monks prayed for him at the cremation site. For the past four decades, he has led the renovation and maintenance of many historic and religious sites in Kathmandu, including Janabahaa, Manjushri, Chhusyabahaa and Pulan Guhyeshori. He has patronized many literary organizations, including Pradipta Pustakalaya, Nepal Lipi Guthi and Asha Safu Kuthi.

Most notable amongst his contributions to the preservation of Nepali heritage are the various renovation works of the Janabahaa Dyo temple and the Janabahaa courtyard complex that he initiated in the last few decades.

Battling cancer for almost a year, the living legend breathed his last on Sunday, aged 76.
