Two Ancient Choks at Hanumandhoka Durbar to be opened for public from 1st January 2012

Posted Dec 20th, 2011 under Company News, Tourism News,

Good news for history & archeology buffs as well as those who love stepping into ancient monuments – the Hanumandhoka Durbar Museum Development Committee has decided to open two ancient courtyards, Mohankali Chok and Sundari Chok, at the Hanumandhoka Durbar for public viewing from 1st January, 2012. Built within the compound of the Hanumandhoka palace by King Pratap Malla in the 17th century, these two courtyards had been out of bounds for the general public. But now the Hanumandhoka Durbar Museum Development Committee, the Kathmandu Metropolitan City and the Nepal Pavilion Company (bodies responsible for the upkeep of the world heritage site) have decided to open the two ancient courtyards so that the people can enjoy and take pride in the architectural grandeur of the two ancient courtyards.
