about narayanhiti palace museum

The name Narayanhiti comes from two words, ‘Narayan’ from the Narayan, Lord Vishnu temple located across the palace and ‘hiti’ which means a water spout which is located east of the main palace entrance. The original palace built in 1915 was destroyed during an earthquake and rebuilt in 1960. The palace got converted into a museum when the country became a republic after the 2006 revolution.

The Narayanhiti Palace Museum is a must visit for those who are interested in learning more about the ‘Royal Massacre of 2001’. The museum allows the visitors to see the vintage furnishings and royal belongings of the residents. You’ll come across many pictures of visiting dignitaries and the royal family on display in the museum. Walking across the various rooms, visitors can learn more about the lavish lifestyle led by the royals within the palace. The crown jewels in the museum are the most valuable possessions of the country.
