Abstract: On October 3, 1997, the mayor of Bhaktapur, Nepal, Prem Suwal, delivered a speech at the inauguration of the city's Tourist Motor Park. He stressed how the newly built complex would increase Bhaktapur's value as a "Traditional City" by cleaning up pollution but still allow tourist revenue to flow into the municipality, which could then be tied back into preserving historic monuments.
