The Sri Lankan gov­ern­ment has re­cently an­nounced that it will re­con­struct two her­itage tem­ples that were se­verely dam­aged by the earth­quake in Nepal. These are the Rato Macchin­dranath Hindu Tem­ple and the Anan­dakuti Vi­har Tem­ple. This was made known at the in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence 'To­ward a Re­silient Nepal', which was held in Kathmandu. Or­ga­nized by the Gov­ern­ment of Nepal, the pur­pose of the in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence was to syn­chro­nize re­build­ing ef­forts among in­ter­na­tional donor agen­cies, part­ner gov­ern­ments and non-gov­ern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tions in­volved in the re­lief and res­cue oper­a­tions and re­con­struc­tion phase, fol­low­ing the earth­quake.
