Trip Planner: Asia / Nepal / Central Region / Bagmati Zone / Kathmandu Valley / Kathmandu / Narayanhiti Palace Museum
Explore the history and enjoy the architecture of Narayanhiti Palace Museum, the former residence of the royal family. Designed in late Victorian style, each room in the palace takes its name from one of Nepal's 75 districts. Go through the reception hall, then see banquet halls, royal bedrooms, and the throne room, which resembles the architectural style of a Hindu temple. In the throne room, whose ceilings reach a height of 18 m (60 ft), you can see a monumental 14.5 m (48 ft) chandelier, as well as various paintings, stuffed animal heads, and photos of the royal family with other national leaders adorning the walls. In 2001, the royal family was massacred in mysterious circumstances, with bullet holes scattered across the palace's walls serving as stark reminders of the tragedy. Cameras and bags are forbidden, but you can keep your belongings in the lockers at the entrance.

ダルバール広場から30分ほど歩いて旧王宮までたどり着きました。入口でカメラやカバンをロッカーに預けなければならないルールになってました。またオープンまで10分ほど待つように言われました。歩き疲れた状態でさらに暑い中で待つのは辛く、さらに荷物を預ける場所から王宮の門まで200〜300メートルほどありそうだったので、建物への入場は断念しました。 入口の網目の鉄フェンスのせいでしょうか、正面から見た建物... more »It took about 30 minutes to reach the Old Royal Palace. It was a rule that you had to leave your camera and bag in the locker at the entrance. I was told to wait about ten minutes for it to open again. It was hard to wait in the hot weather in the tired state, and the entrance to the building was abandoned because it seemed to be about 200-300 meters from the place where luggage was left to the gate of the royal palace. Perhaps because of the iron fence in the net at the entrance, the building seen from the front gave the impression of a prison.
It is one of the places of Nepal which provides us the detailed information of the lifestyle of king and the royal family during Monarchy. For Nepali student it's Rs.20 , for common Nepalese it's Rs. 100 , the citizens of SAARC countries should pay Rs.250 and the people of other countries need to pay Rs.500. Only Nepali currency is accepted. You are not allowed to take any electronics inside the palace including camera and cell phones. The ticket counter museum remains open from 12 in the noon to 2 in the afternoon. Hope you will have a great time here . ❤️❤️
