Dwarika Hotel
Kathmandu Nepal

Dwarika's Hotel is a unique place in South Asia. It is a living example that tourism need not destroy heritage and the environment. On the contrary, it has demonstrated that a proper blending of cultural restoration and tourism leads to the preservation of historical artifacts and contributes to the growth of skills and culture that would otherwise have eroded from the crass commercialism of today. It has shown that heritage can be preserved and be used for further preservation works. In fact, it could be the model to demonstrate what must be done to preserve the look of Kathmandu Valley - a stepping stone towards the larger and more gigantic task of rehabilitating the uniqueness and beauty of Kathmandu currently experiencing severe environmental stress of uncontrolled modernization.

Dwarika's Hotel a unique place in South Asia. Nowhere else is heritage restoration being attempted in a way that rejuvenates it and makes it a part of today's living environment. Recognizing this highly original and challenging effort, PATA (Pacific Asia Travel Association) awarded Dwarika's its first PATA Heritage Award in 1980.

Nepal has eight World Heritage sites and has won two Heritage Awards. One for the Medieval City of Bhaktapur and the other for The Dwarika's Hotel.
