  BY ASHISH DHAKAL  
 
The Narayanhiti Palace Museum today stands as the recent relic of the 240-year-old Shah rule in Nepal. This was where one of the latest and bloodiest royal massacres in the world occurred, and also where the Nepali monarchy saw its end. And the palace has now been turned into a very successful museum that is considered to be one of the biggest highlights of Kathmandu at present, much to the public’s gratification.

However, it was never designed for a museum.
