A Nepali plaque to bring together culture and faith is proposed for Gough Whitlam Reserve, Earlwood.

Canterbury-Bankstown is one of the most diverse places on earth, with 60 per cent of our residents speaking a language other than English at home.

For more than 3,000 people in our City, that language is Nepali.

Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour said to acknowledge this community, Council has worked closely with the Nepali Community in Australia community group to design the new plaque that represents Nepali culture.

“We are inviting everyone in the community to have their say on this plaque,” Mayor Asfour said.

“The plaque shows imagery related to faith and culture including a stupa, prayer flags, silhouettes of temples, the Himalayas, and a lotus mandala.”

The words read, ॐमणिपद्मेहूँ, representing the Pāramitā which includes generosity, ethics, patience, diligence, renunciation and wisdom.

The plaque will be funded by members of the Nepali Community in Australia.
