Yurgan in Nepal 2009, visit to Narayanhiti Palace in Kathmandu, Nepal

After the revolution lead by the Maoists forced the king out, the Narayanhiti Palace is now a museum and open to the public.

Photographing is strictly prohibited and the level of maintenance is very low. The garden looks poor and despite the throne and a few statues no valuables of the former kings are displayed.

The site of the massacre of the family of King Birendra has been completely deconstructed and only the foundation of the buildings can be seen.

A strange atmosphere surrounds the whole palace, as civilian dressed secret service and army people are observing the visitors and are lazily hanging around in the rooms.

Still a lot of work has to be done to develop a museum showing to the people of Nepal and the world, how the kings of Nepal lived in a respectful way.

... photo quality is very low, as we tried not to risk our mobiles and camera...
