3.7/5 based on 120 reviews on the web
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.

  • 我去的时候是周二周三闭关 其他时间开放 晚上11点开门 我们10点50到的时候门口排队买票队伍好长 门票对南亚和中国游客好实惠 才250尼币 其他国家游客需要500尼币 内部不允许带手机相机和包包进去 需要寄存 皇宫虽然只开放了部分 但还是蛮不错的 毕竟是以前的皇室居住地 参观时间建议在一个半小时左右 可惜改造为博物馆后室内和室外花园保护做的不好 花园都是杂草。花园有皇室惨案的介绍。
