As an architect and planner I was in charge ofthe master plan development of the Bajrayogini Temple Complex. In that plan I have also made recommendation for its enlisting in World heritage site. I am very much happy for the proposal to list in the world heritage sites. I will be more elated when it will be decalred world heritage sites in near future.
