About Hanuman Dhoka palace

The Hanuman Dhoka palace is no longer the residence of the Shah kings but is still used for ceremonial gatherings and events like the coronation. The Hanuman Dhoka gate has a fantastic carved representation of Lord Ram’s Man Friday: the revered monkey god here is awash in vermilion ‘sindur’ paste. Only a part of the grounds is open to visitors. The half man-half lion Narsimha figure of one of the incarnations of Vishnu is from 1673 AD when the king Pratap Malla danced dressed like the god and then sought to appease Him by having a statue made in His honour. Must’ve worked considering the Malla king enjoyed a long and glorious time at the throne!
