Shreepech, the King’s Crown to be displayed at Narayanhiti Museum

Posted Mar 21st, 2012 under Company News, Tourism News,

Shreepech, the official crown of the erstwhile monarch of Nepal will be put up for public viewing at Narayanhiti Palace Museum in Kathmandu shortly. Gyanendra Shah, the last king of Nepal had handed over the crown and royal staff to Nepal Government after the fall of monarchy and the establishment of republican form of government in Nepal . The elaborate crown which is decorated with precious stones – diamonds, rubies, pearls and emeralds and bird-of-paradise plumes had been kept under tight security at the Narayanhiti museum. The decision to put it up for public viewing was taken after funds were allocated for additional security at the museum. The Shreepech will be kept in a bullet-proof show case at the Surkhet Baithak (the room at the former palace where foreign dignitaries were received).
