It is the historical place from which Kathmandu city got its place. It has been renovated because it was severly damaged by the earthquake. In the past, it used to be an important place for trading, and now it is a site of cultural heritage. The local artisans have managed to recapture the essence of ancient Nepal which you can observe in the intricate details of the architecture. It stands still.

As much as natural disasters are unavoidable so is the rebuilding process for historical monuments(in some cases), but even after seven years, it seems rebuilding has not been 100% achieved.
But at least it feels good to see Kasthamandap being rebuilt. Standing admirably and representing Kathmandu.
Respect to those artisan woodworkers and Craftsman????.

Situated in Basantapur Durbar Square,Kasthamandap is three storeyed public shelter. It is believed to be constructed by king Laxmi Narsingha Malla in 16th century. But recent archeological findings during the excavation after 2015 earthquake have suggested that it may have been built in the 7th century during Lichhabi era. It was made with single tree-sal and said to be one of the oldest wooden-made buildings in the world.

This place is reflects typical hilly Nepalese culture with architecture dated way back from the Rana Regime. The food in this area is great for Non-vegetarians.
