I visited here after first stopping off at the museum lower down the hill which, although not stuffed with exhibits, gives one an idea of the local history. The drive up to the Palace winds steeply, eventually finishing in a pretty rough parking area with some stalls & food available. Then there is a climb up many stone stairs to... More

This monument is good enough to burn the hearts of all those people who strive for an independent Nepal. The palace built on top of the hill has a story to tell to each of the visitors. The well built walls and stairs to the top resembles the great wall, though too short to be compared with such a wall.... More

After Earthquake, this was my first visit. The impact of earthquake can be easily guessed whoever steps into the Gorkha Palace. Reconstruction works are going which may last for few months more. People are not allowed inside now. The cave though doesn't look much impact on earthquake. So overall, it is still worth visiting Palace. Now since the vehicles go... More

I was very impressed with this temple. The walk up and down from the temple, on the other side of the hill, was a real joy. This is a non commercialized temple in a beautiful setting.

The Gorkha Durbar, Kalika Temple are in the same compound. They are about 5 km up hill from the Gorkha village center and then you have to climb up the stairs for about 10 minutes. The views are spectacular. If you have time, I will certainly recommend visiting this place
