March 17, 2017


Kathmandu, the Capital City of Nepal, is the largest city in the country and is a home to over 1.4 million people and 5 million in its urban agglomeration across the Kathmandu Valley, which includes the towns of Lalitpur, Kirtipur, Madhyapur Thimi and Bhaktapur.

The city was the royal capital of the Kingdom of Nepal and hosts palaces, mansions and gardens of the Nepalese aristocracy.

Kathmandu has been the center of Nepal's history, art, culture and economy. It has a multiethnic population within a Hindu and Buddhist majority. Religious and cultural festivities form a major part of the lives of people residing in Kathmandu.

Tourism is an important part of the economy as the city is the gateway to the Nepalese Himalayas.

Here were 10 vintages photographs of the historic city. Photo courtesy: Vintage Nepal/Facebook
