55 Windows Palace

Located in the center of Bhaktapur Durbar square the 55 window palace, or Palace of Fifty-Five Windows, was built by King Bhupatindra Malla. However, it was not completed until 1754 during the reign of Jaya Ranjit Malla, who was the last of the Bhaktapur Malla kings. Today the 55 Window Palace still stands as Bhaktapur’s Royal Palace on ceremonial occasions. The interior of the 55 Window Palace is closed (for many decades). There was a lot of damage done to it during the 1934 earthquake. There are plans to renovate the area but a lot of this is held up due to funding. There is an entrance to several inner courtyards around the palace through including the Golden Gate, one of the most lavish and important artifacts in Nepal today. Non-hindus may only continue on to Taleju Chowk but everyone can visit the ornate royal water tank Naga Pokhari.
