Balmiki Dham is a holy site where Balmiki, the great harbinger-poet,wrote the holiest book of the Hindus, the Ramayan.

Due to negligence of the authorities on the Nepali side, it is on the verge of persishing and also being encroached. Biraj travels to this holy site, where there is not even a road to reach it from the Nepali side, and one has to take a boat across the river Gandaki or cross over to the Indian border and come back again.

If proper awareness and care is not given to this holy place, Nepal risks losing one of the most important part of its history.
