  • Good place to hangout with friends, get local tea and enjoy the historical monument. Lots of temples around to visit. Good place for alley walking and exploring local shops, many restaurants, mixture of old and contemporary building and shopping goods.
  • It's a one of the world heritage site in Nepal. It's a historical palace . It has its own history to tell. But because of the latest earthquake in Nepal, some of its part has fallen. The reconstruction process is going on. A highly recommend place to all visitors.
