Photographer's Note

The neoclassical building in the eastern side of Durbar square was the Palace occupied by the Rana's who ruled between 1846 and 1951 and were very pro-British hence the design. It was built in 1908 by the Rana prime minister Chandra Shamsher during the reign of King Prithvi Bir Bikram Shah. This place was partialy destroyed in April 2015 by the earthquake and has now been fixed. It seems somewhat out of place with the other buildings in this square. The building is known to have been modeled after London’s national gallery. Although the palace was first built by Chandra Shumsher for residential use by Kings, by the time of King Mahendra Shah, it had become a center from which Kings ruled and settled the affairs of the country, hence, its name Gaddi Baithak or the Royal seat.
