Narayanhiti is a walled palace that holds testimony of the most important political changes that transformed Nepal. Formerly the residence of King Gyanendra, it was soon converted into a people’s museum after he was asked to move out in 2007. Visitors get to experience the grandeur (or gaudiness, depending on your taste) of the throne and banquet halls and the royal bedrooms too. There are some stuffed tigers, rhino heads that take a place of pride in the living room. Of course, there are some very larger than life photos of the royal family too. Rather morbid is the demarcation of the locations where Prince Dipendra massacred his own family.

Bullet holes are still visible on some of the walls.
