Kathmandu Valley    Khokana (Town)   

Khokana (Town)

Alternative Names: Khvakna, Jitapuri


Tentative List of UNESCO World Heritage : Khokana, the vernacular village and its mustard-oil seed industrial heritage (1996).
My idea is that each Place (Area) in the Town should be represented by at least one picture of a Temple, a Shrine, a Chaitya and Sculptures.



You`ll find it`s Location in the picture farthest left under
No. 14
