Chiva at Makhan got fitted with Gaju

Image
Chiva at Makhan was without Gaju, Gaju, the top most pinnacle part was broken/lost. After request from local resident, Chiva Chaitya Organization fitted the Gaju and made the Chiva complete again. It is to be noted that it takes skilled stone carvers to carve the essential carvings on the Gaju, They need to have the knowledge about symbols and also their positioning. We want to thank local residents Suresh Tamrakar Dai and ChandraBir Tuladhar Dai for support. We think that saving the Chiva, working on them will increase the awareness among people and also among authorities about the social, historical and also economic importance of saving heritage for the country as a whole. काठमाण्डौं मखं स्थित चिभा को गजुर मर्मत गरिएको छ। यस बाट चिभा पुर्ण देखिइको छ र उक्त ठाउं नैं शोभनिय भएको छ। हजुरहरुले पनि चिभा चैत्य संस्थाका यस्तै कार्यहरुलाई सहयोग गर्न सक्नु हुन्छ। Chiva Serial Number: P Total Gaju restored till now since counting: 7 Previous Gaju installation includes: BhindyoTwa-1, LakhaTirt

Chiva at Chikanmuga (Kami Nani) got restored

Image
We continue to work. A Chiva at Kaminani(Chikamuga) got restored. We continue to restore and attend the unattended heritage.   Gaju or pinnacle of a Chiva carry lots of symbolism. The lowest part Harmika (cube shaped) contains eyes and key (looking like nose) - door to the wisdom, Toran - with symbol of each of Pancha Buddha (concept of five Buddhas, four depicted on Chiva), The thirteen circles depicting the perfection one need to attain enlightenment. Then at the top Usnish Chudamani - Buddha himself. Thus a Chiva missing with a Gaju is missing lots of deep meaning. Inspecting Chiva on request of Community Performing Puja on the Chiva Working on Chiva After Restoration हामी हाम्रो सम्पदा, देशको सम्पति चिभाहरुको संरक्षण र प्रबर्धनमा लगातार लागि रहेका छौं। काठमाण्डौ चिकंमुग स्थित चिभाको मर्मत तथा गजुर समेत फिट गर्ने कार्य सम्पन्न भयो। हामी स्थानिय वडा, राजन मानन्धर दाई, ,उमेश स्थापित दाई, प्रदिप बज्राचार्य दाई साथै सबै प्रकारले सहयोग गर्नु हुने अनेश चित्रकार दाईलाई पनि बिषेश धन्यबाद।
