Historical Significance of Chandragiri Hills Station
Chandragiri hills carry historical significance. It was from these hills that King Prithvi Narayan Shah caught the first glimpses of a much more scenic and prosperous Kathmandu valley, which in fact instilled in the king’s mind the idea of annexing the valley into his kingdom. According, to folklore, Prithvi Narayan Shah is believed to have amassed spiritual powers for the unification process after undergoing rigorous sadhana or meditation at these very hills. Because of its beauty and location, Kingdom Gorkha united all tiny states into what today is known as the greater Nepal.
