Nissanga Malla Audience Hall
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.
