The Gaddi Baithak is a neoclassical building from which Nepal’s kings once ruled and settled the affairs of the country – hence its name, which means Royal Seat. It also was the place where important foreign guests like ambassadors were welcomed by the king. The 100-year-old palace and one of the most Nepal’s iconic heritage buildings was heavily damaged by a M-7.8 earthquake that destroyed scores of history and killed hundreds at a UNESCO World Heritage site here in 2015.
Reflection of one of the best construction during Rana regime in Nepal in 20th century..
