Model Answer 1:
Kathmandu is a smaller city than the other modern cities of Asia and rest of the world but it comes with some of the special facilities that are adorable. It has a very special sports stadium and used for several purposes. I have been at the stadium for several times and will describe the structure of my national pride.

This is the largest stadium in the country, and the stadium is named as the Dasarath Stadium. The stadium is located in Kathmandu. It can accommodate over 17, 000 spectators at a time. The naming of the stadium is a historic issue. In fact, the name of the stadium was done after one of the great martyrs of Nepal, Dashrath Chand. To commemorate the sacrifice of this great hero, the government had named the stadium after him. This is a nice looking stadium and also has increased the beauty of the city.

I am a sales executive and thus I cannot manage much time to visit the stadium owing my professional engagement. On the other side, the stadium is not opened for all and round the week. The stadium opens marking any occasion or any special event. This place is largely used for holding various football matches and other completions. Sometimes, few of the international tournaments take place in this stadium which attracts a huge number of local and international crowd. The surrounding area takes a festive look. The entire city becomes illuminated. The stadium comes with special features and the lighting system is adorable indeed. The stadium is also used as the ground for the national football team of the country. It also holds some other leagues and events at different times of the year. So, when I can manage time and any special event takes place at the stadium, I visit it.

This is a multipurpose stadium. And so, it is used for various purposes other than holding only sports competitions. The stadium has held a good number of local and international cultural events. And the spectators enjoyed the events live inside the stadium. Besides, the stadium is a gathering place for the commoners. When any event is organised, they come with groups. The group members contain their relatives, friends and family members. It becomes a happy event for them to be here with the group and enjoy themselves. Besides, the events held here are exciting and enjoyable. It brings a sense of relief among the local people. By the same time, based on the stadium, economic activities also get a boost. It brings some luck for the local people as well. But most of the people come here to enjoy the cultural shows and sporting events that are held annually or on the occasional basis.    

This is an important place for the city dwellers for many reasons. Firstly, this is the common ground for entertainment for the local people. They have to remain busy round the week or month. In fact, it is almost impossible for them to be relived without any external source of entertainment. The stadium plays the role of the external source of entertainment. Besides, this is a beauty for the nation and the city of Kathmandu. The place holds many national and international event and people of all strata join here. The entire locality becomes a festival ground which brings a sense of joy and happiness among everyone. So, this place bears a great significance.
