In a country short on homegrown preservation efforts, KVPT has established itself as a steward of some of Nepal's most fantastic monuments. Most of its efforts have revolved around the stunning Patan Darbar royal complex, which comprises mainly 17th-century Buddhist and Hindu structures and remains a key part of religious life in Kathmandu today. (As Nepal's most popular tourist attraction, it is also an important source of revenue.) KVPT recently restored 18 of Patan's temples, and the trust continues to perform restoration work in the hope of one day opening the entire complex to the public.
