 Nuwakot Durbar

Nuwakot Durbar is the historical palace of Nepal which is located in Nuwakot district of Nepal. Situated at the elevation of 900 meters at the mid-hills of central Nepal, this seven storey palace has a spectacular sight.

In 1762, Prithvi Narayan Shah built this most popular Saat Tale Darbar (Seven storey palace) by hiring labourers from Lalitpur in 1762. It is a model of architecture. It is notable that King Rana Bahadur Shah met the British representative Mr. William Kirkpatric at this place in 1793 just after the war between Nepal and China.

Besides,just east-southern side of Saat Tale Darbar, here is a west facing palace made of oily bricks, called Rangamahal. The three Malla Kings of Kantipur Valley made this as a recreational spot. There are many dabalis and rest houses; built with religious and social purposes.

Cultural practices of Malla period continue to be the main attraction for tourists in this area. Even today, many people from different area come here to observe different cultural festivals. Such as Bhairabi Jatra or Sindure Jatra, Narayan Jatra, Shipai Jatra, Devi Jatra, Lakhe dance, Krishna Janmashtami, etc.

Nuwakot Durbar area is composed of Malla style palace, stone inscription, Taleju goddess, Taleju Bhawani temple complex with beautiful views all around. At that time, different places, rest houses, dablis, temples and stupas of archeological significance were built during Malla and Shah Period. Its seven storeys, intricate carvings, thick stone walls, and ornate temples still make it a must-see attraction.

However, the durbar did suffer significant damage in the earthquakes of 2015. Remaking endeavors are in progress to ration the legacy site that assumed an essential job in molding the historical backdrop of current Nepal.
