Historical Significance of Chandragiri Hill Day Tour Package

The Chandragiri Hills are quite significant from a historical standpoint. It was from these hills that King Prithivi Narayan Shah caught the first glimpse of a much more scenic and prosperous Kathmandu valley, which in fact instilled in the king’s mind an 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 meditation or ‘sadhana’ at these very hills. The Gorkhali King disguised himself while ascending the hills in order to avoid being recognized by the Malla Kings of Kathmandu.

In this Divine Preaching, it has been mentioned that King Prithivi Narayan was determined to first annex and then make Kathmandu the capital of unified Nepal. He apparently first saw the valley while on his way back to his kingdom in Gorkha from his in-law’s realm in Makwanpur. According to Historian Prof. Dr. Dinesh Raj Panta, astrologers Bhanu Aryal and Kulananda Dhakal who accompanied the king during that trip had made a prediction that their King’s wish to take over Kathmandu would definitely come true. As per popular belief, pleased with his perseverance and Sadhana, it was Bhaleshwara Mahade that granted King Prithivi Narayan Shah his wishes.
