900 years-old stone spout discovered at Chauni

ancient-stone-spout

An ancient and rare stone spout which is believed to be 900 years-old by the Department of Archeiology(DOA) was discovered by the locals at Kimdol, Chauni.

The stone was discovered some three weeks ago on the process of road expansion at the building of Kimdol Jangagriti Khanepani Organization building  and after that the Tole Sudhar Samiti (TSS) began excavation.

On the process of road expansion an ancient stone which was buried under earth was discovered. In the course of the road expansion, the boundary wall of the building was demolished to construct footpath. Then an elderly woman had noticed a stone spout.

Before the Khanepani officials refused to allow excavation but later they agreed to excavate the place.

One of the devotee coming to visit Swayambhunath, 63-year-old Bishnu Devi Shahi told that they used to drink water from that spout some 40 years ago.

“As time passed, the stone spout disappeared. We forgot about it. But, when the compound wall of the Khanepani Sansthan was demolished, I remembered that a stone spout existed there,” said Shahi.

The DoA is at odds over whether to take it to museum or allow it to remain there. They say, the spout could have been built during the early midieval period (12th century). Such kinds of stone spout are found in western regions and is rarely found in the capital valley.

Apparently, the DoA does not have any idea about what to do with the spout. Bhesh Narayan Dahal, director general at DoA, said that they do not have any plans for the spout, as of now. The Khanepani Sansthan does not want the spout at the same place.

Although, the stone spout has been discovered by the locals, they want the concerned authorities to preserve it as locals don’t have enough knowledge to preserve it.

Such traditional stone spouts used to be a major source of water for residents of the Kathmandu Valley. But, they are on the verge of disappearing.
