Manali buildings to get traditional kath-kuni look

Manali: All buildings on the mall road area in Manali will get a traditional look with kath-kuni architectural style, an official from municipal council (MC) said.

As part of beautification of the town, the local civic body has planned to adopt the kath-kuni style which had remained an integral part of villages for centuries.

“All expenses will be borne by the tourism department with help of Asian Development Bank (ADB). We are waiting for an NOC from owners of all the buildings. Either Kullu or Manali are to be selected for this project. Hopefully, we shall get an NOC from all the properties soon and the project will be sanctioned in a few months. This way, all buildings will look similar and beautiful,” said Manali MC president Neena Thakur.

The officials from MC and the administration held a meeting with local stakeholders on Monday and discussed the project in detail.
