KATHMANDU, July 28: A detailed master plan has been prepared for the Pashupatinath region, in which the government is preparing to invite 1 percent of people following Hindu religion all over the world. 

The ambitious master plan prepared by the Pashupati Area Development Trust has been approved by the Board of Directors chaired by the Minister of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation on February 2, 2020 and submitted for approval by the Council of Ministers.  It is stated that the retention and principles of the master plan prepared under the coordination of former Member Secretary of the Trust and Master plan expert Chetonath Gautam have been approved by the governing council and will be submitted to the council of ministers with the approval of the concerned ministries.

The master plan has been formulated to build infrastructure by estimating the number of devotees coming to Pashupati area for the next 50 years. Currently, devotees who come to Pashupati do not even go to the Guhyeshwari temple. Concluding that the devotees could not reach the place of interest due to lack of detailed information about the Pashupati area, the fund has proposed to set up a tourist information center at the place where the Metropolitan Police Circle Gaushala is located.
