History - Garden of Dreams in the 1920s

The Garden of Dreams, also known as the Garden of Six Seasons, was created by Kaiser Sumsher Rana in the early months of 1920. When set in contrast to the other gardens that were designed in those years, this tourist attraction, inspired by the Edwardian style of architecture, was wonderfully modern in its time. Under the professional supervision of the renowned architect, Kishore Narsingh, this European garden was a repository of fascinating features. After Kaiser Sumsher Rana passed away, the Government of Nepal took over the responsibility of the garden. After lying dormant for several years without any attempts at restoration, the Garden of Dreams came back to life after a renewal project was begun with the financial aid of the Government of Austria and the implementation of Eco Himal.

Along the perimeter of the path paved across the place, sunken flower gardens, with viridescent ponds in the middle, add to the beauty of the attraction. This place is also home to several classical concerts, corporate functions, private receptions, as well as cultural programs. In 2016, a small museum was integrated within the garden, and at present, it also houses a library and a cafe.
