Hanuman Dhoka, Kathmandu

Architectural Building · Hidden Gem · Landmark
Step into the cultural history of Nepal when visiting Hanuman Dhoka, a long-time Hindu pilgrimage site. The location was heavily damaged by the 2015 earthquake that hit the region, though repairs have restored many buildings and reinforced others. Originally built with only one wing of the current area in the mid-16th century, the rest of the complex was added building by building by monarchs and ministers over the next three centuries. See where the royal family was housed for years, and walk through history to learn about Hindu beliefs.
