While discussing the essence of art, we should not forget about Araniko who had presented the model of Nepali craftsmanship in China. His pagoda style buildings are still here to illustrate how beautiful was his work. He was very interested in crafts and wood decoration. Due to his strong devotion and hard work, he got the chance to showcase his talent in the foreign land. He grabbed his opportunity and made the remarkable buildings in Nepal and China. His works influenced many people all over the planet. Many educational institutes have included his style in their curriculum.

Moreover, our art embodies our religious feeling as well as glorious cultural traits. We should protect and repair them time to time. some of the basic ways to protect of heritage sites are listed below:

  • We should make the surrounding of our temple, stupa, monasteries, church, gurudhurra, etc neat and clean.
  • Disposing of household garbage and scraps near to heritage area should be strictly prohibited.
  • We should plant trees around such place and maintain greenery all over.
  • We should not let our pet dog and other animals in such place as they may ruin the beauty of sites.
  • Regular inspection should be done to confirm that every precious stones and craft are safe and well protected.
  • We should split and drop water here and there.
  • Noise should be avoided.
  • Local people should be active and make some club to look after the maintenance of these historical sites.

It's the duty and responsibility of every citizen to protect and preserve these natural and manmade heritages. We must strictly avoid the concept that it is the responsibility of the state or the government to protect and repair them. In many cases, our monuments has lost their important parts. Some are stolen and some are ruined due to natural causes. We lack the knowledge that it's us to get benefited from those heritage sites. After knowing that they are our own property and they make us proud, it will be very foolish to avoid their protection. So, with full awareness and the collective effort, we can protect our arts and architectures.
