  • Description

    Immediately after their return from Pokhra, where they watched a tiger hunt, Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh took time off from official Nepalese itinerary to see some of the ancient relics and monuments in and around Kathmandu.

    At Pattan, some 2 miles south-east of Kathmandu, they visited some of the ancient Hindu shrines and temples, some dating back to 299 A.D. They expressed great admiration for the Krishna Mandir Temple - built in the fifteenth century.

    Returning to Kathmandu, the Royal couple drove straight to Hanuman Dhoka. This is the ancient Royal palace, surrounded by a cluster of fascinating pagoda-roofed buildings. The Hanuman Dhoka, now a temple, is dedicated to the Monkey-God.
