In this paper, common deficiencies in traditional stone masonry buildings for seismic loading are reviewed along with current practice of reinforcing new buildings and strengthening existing buildings. Major factors to be considered in reinforcing the stone masonry for its sustainability are discussed. Also, a need for reducing the gaps in field implementation is addressed.
