Basantapur Tower, Kathmandu Overview

Basantapur Tower was the tallest tower in Kathmandu Durbar Square once. Basantapur Tower is an 18th-century monument built during the reign of King Prithvi Narayan of the Shah Dynasty. It has nine storeys, the top two floors of which were destroyed in the 2015 earthquake that hit Nepal. The levels have been restored, and tourists can explore the tower from the outside and the inside. Most of it is hidden behind scaffoldings, and one needs to take a closer look to see the ancient carvings on the restored wooden structure. The entrance is through Lohan Chowk up a narrow staircase, and one can enjoy a fabulous view of Kathmandu through the windows on every floor.
