The Saat Taale Durbar or the Seven Storied Palace in Nuwakot that was constructed by King Prithvi Narayan Shah more then 250 years ago will be formally inaugurated as a public museum today. Education Minister Mr. Gangalal Tuladhar is scheduled to inaugurate the renovated museum which showcases articles and items of historical importance related to King Prithvi Narayan Shah. A statue of Prithvi Narayan Shah and his two queens that was sculpted during his reign and believed to be around 240 years old is the major highlight of the museum. This statue was brought from Hanuman Dhoka Museum in Kathmandu to Nuwakot by the Department of Archaelogy.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour, good mix of seeing, appreciating and understanding the cultural and natural heritage of Tibet and a little of Nepal and the wonderful Landscapes and mountains.
