At Babar Mahal Revisited, Baithakrestaurant has a dramatic and regal, almost Victorian setting, with crystal and linens and where diners are attended by waiters dressed in royal costume and watched over by looming portraits of Ranas. The ancestral portraits and live cultural show adds cherry to the icing. Dining at Baithak allows you to be a part of theFeast of the Rana Maharajas.
In the year A.D. 1913, the then reigning Prime Minister Chandra Shumsher Rana built Baber Mahal (palace) for his beloved son Baber Shumsher Rana. The remains of the palace courts and the defence unit today comprise ‘Baber Mahal Revisited” restored in A.D. 1997 by Mr. Gautam SJB Rana, the grandson of Baber Shumsher Rana, to its regal bygone aura.
Baber Mahal Revisited encompasses a fusion of neo-classical architecture, a rich mix of Nepalese, European and Indian influence. This project was the first private endeavour in local architectural conservation that entered the list of UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards Project.
