Description

Narayanhiti is a beautiful palace in Kathmandu, which served as the residence of the reigning Monarch of the kingdom of Nepal. The word Narayana hit refers to two words Narayan meaning Lord Vishnu and Hiti refers to the water spout. The palace was reconstructed in the year 1963 by King Mahendra, and the new palace was built using Nepalese architecture. The interior of this palace is of late Victorian style. In June 2001, Ten members of the royal family including King Birendra and Queen Aishwarya were massacred by crowned prince Dipendra. The apparent motive was revenge after the King and Queen refused to approve the Prince’s marriage intentions to Devyani Rana. On 11 June 2001, Hindu Katto ceremony was held to exorcise the spirit of the late king, an elephant rode out of Kathmandu carrying most of the late king’s belongings.   King Gyanendra replaced his brother Birendra and Nepalis voted to abolish the monarchy in 2008. The new parliament promptly gave Gyanendra 15 days to vacate the Palace. The opening of the Palace Museum by Nepal’s prime minister in February 2009 was a highly symbolic event.
