Thanks Jim. It is more of a museum now, not serving any functional purpose, but offering visitors a view of the grandeur of the past. Wikipedia informs the palace was severely damaged during the big 2001 earthquake, and many priceless antiques were looted immediately thereafter when it stood exposed. The popular Hindi actor Amitabh Bachhan took personal interest in restoring the palace to its current state.
