Royal order to Subedar Bhimsen Baniya: ”Do not let herds of cows and buffaloes be taken through the gates of the Pauwa fort in Sindhuli, as such a practice will damage the road. However, traders shall be allowed to bring in buffaloes through that road.

”Remove all settlement from the area south of the Mahabharat mountains, north of the Churia hills, west of Kawala and east of Pipaldanda. Close all tracks in that area and let it grow as a forest.
