Loved the architecture of this palace. Standing aside the golden gate, this palace is the pride of Newari Artisans. 55 Bay Windows, carved manually from 16th Century. Awesome

You can enter the palace (little 'Golden door' on the side) included in the Square fee. Not much visible nowadays after the earthquake but the pool is magnificent. Inside the buildings there is also a Hindu temple, available only for hindus.

If you love history and architecture like me, then it’s a must visit place. The medieval palace has beautifully hand carved woods. The place has both historical and religious value. Visit the museum near by it and the palace museum.
