The Narayanhiti Palace, Kathmandu Nepal
The Narayanhiti palace, now a museum was home to all Shah rulers of Nepal was opened to the public in February 2009 after King Gyanendra stepped down as a monarch. The part of the Palace that covers an area just over forty thousand square feet has been opened to the public as a museum. The visitors are able to view the old furniture and art collection that has been in the palace for centuries and marvel at the ornaments and lifestyle enjoyed within the walls of the palace.
Valuable medals and idols are also on display, including a fleet of historic vehicles, of which one was gifted by Hitler to King Tribhuvan. Some items, such as the Royal Crown and throne are not open to viewing due to security reasons, as they are extremely valuable pieces, The Narayanhiti Museum is a great place to learn about Nepal’s history and its mighty Rulers.
