The great King Prithvi Narayan Shah unifying the Nepal in the eighteenth century and Gorkha Tourism soldiers under his dynamic leadership eventually succeeded in conquering the Kathmandu valley.
Since the capital of Nepal was shifted to
Kathmandu. But this beautiful township has always remained as the center of
attraction for many Nepalese as well as foreign visitors.
Situated on a hill overlooking the snowy peaks of the Himalaya is a beautiful old palace known as Gorkha Durbar.
There are two attractive temples of Gorakhanath and Kali inside the palace precinct. Here is also a small market(Gorkha bazaar).
It is primarily a cobbled street market place where by people from neighboring
hill dwellings come to trade. Below the ten meters of palace's southern side,
is the holy cave temple of Gorkhanath.
Gorkha Nepal Travel Tours can be reached in about six hours by road from Kathmandu and four hours from Pokhara.
A side trip to Manakamana temple on the way to Gorkha Tourism is very enjoyable and interesting.
On the west side of palace is the temple of Goddess Gorakhkali.
There is also a famous cave sheltering the statue of Gorakhnath Baba (sage).
It is believed that the name of Gorkha was derived from the name of this sage, whose blessings inspired King Prithvi Narayan Shah for the unification of Nepal.
From the top of the hill above Gorkha palace and from a saddle east of the bazaar, the view of Manaslu and Himalchuli is spectacular.
Among the sites to visit, Gorkha Tourism Durbar tops the list. This historical palace is a one-hour walk from the downtown Gorkha.
The palace is strategically located over a fortified hillock. On the southwestern side of palace lies the temple of Goddess Gorakhkali.
A cave that claims to shelter the statue of Gorakhnath, the Tantrik sage, adjoins it. The place is picture-perfect to have a view of Mansalu and Himalchuli peaks of Himalayas.
Nevertheless, the best place to have a view of the palace and peaks is Upallokot, a viewpoint made on a pedestal over the hill at the height of some 5000 feet.
The other important site is Mankamana Temple. The place lays on a beautiful ridge southeast of the township of Gorkha.
