  • Supposed to say the royal palace listed in UNESCO world heritage site have 55 windows as the king had 55 wives.
  • Located in the center of Bhaktapur Durbar square the 55 window palace, or Palace of Fifty-Five Windows, was built by King Bhupatindra Malla. Today the 55 Window Palace still stands as Bhaktapur's Royal Palace on ceremonial occasions. The interior of the 55 Window Palace is closed.
  • The palace was very well maintained, a lot of people get startled​ by the amount of security there and wont enter the palace. I would recommend you to ask the guards​ who are there, they are very chilled and would answer your question and depending on the situation would also allow you to enter.
  • Most maintained and we'll preserved palace in bhaktapur durbar square.
  • Masterpiece of art made by one of the malla king Bhupatindra Malla Here is the collection of different artifacts from that period of time. really amazed seeing the palace.
