Bhrikuti Mandap Park

Bhrikuti Mandap Park Bhrikuti Mandap Ground: Known to the city residents for the many exhibitions and fairs organised in the Bhrikuti Mandap hall within its premises, the ground was otherwise popular among its visitors as a spot for leisure activities such as sun basking, having lunch together and hanging out with friends. The previous grass lawn is at present a levelled ground with concrete tiles due to a decision made by Ministry for Commerce and Supplies, with the pretext that the exhibition hall was insufficient for SAARC Trade Fair (Bhrikuti Mandap Land Loses Luster, The Kathmandu Post). Despite the absence of the greenery, Bhrikuti Mandap ground is still filled with people seeking public spaces in growingly urbanising Kathmandu.
