Nissanga Malla Audience Hall

Raja Sabha Mandapaya of King Nissanga Malla


Also in the same area as the unidentified structure of the Nissanga Malla, this is made of solid rock and probably held a wooden roof. The building has been held by 48 stone pillars laid in 4 rows. The throne is a massive lion carved in stone. “Throne of the King” is carved at the bottom of the lion figure.

This building has a high importance to the historians as all the pillars are carved with the person’s designation who would sit there.
