The International Symposium on Heritage and Tourism: Exploring Issues and Opportunities for Post-Disaster Rehabilitation is a two-day event that will take place at Patan Museum from 15 April 2016 to 16 April 2016. Patan Museum is located in beautiful Patan Durbar Square. The symposium has been timed to coincide with Bisket Jatra, a vibrant festival celebrated during the start of the Nepali New year. Delegates may choose to arrive earlier to visit Bhaktapur for these festivities. Optional evening visits will also take place during the symposium to some of the world heritage sites in Kathmandu heavily affected by the recent earthquake.
