Kathmandu’s two main streets contrast strongly to the older sectors of narrow streets and brick houses adorned with carved doors and windows. Destruction caused by an earthquake in 1934 resulted in the construction of many modern-style buildings. The city’s most notable building is the old palace of the Malla kings, which includes Taleju temple (1549), built by Raja Mahindra Malla.Festivals in Kathmandu include, in spring, the Shivaratri and the Machendra Jatra with its procession bearing the image of the god Machendra; in late summer, the Gai Jatra (festival of the cow); and, in early autumn, the Indra Jatra, during which the goddess Devi, represented by a young girl, is carried in procession.
To the east is Tundi Khel, the parade ground, in the centre of which is a stone platform surrounding a tree, from which important government pronouncements were formerly made first to the army. Between it and the city is a tall watchtower built by Bhim Sen Thapa, a former prime minister. On the outskirts of Kathmandu are many palaces built by the Rana family.
Many of the hills around Pokhara still have medieval ruins from this time. In 1786 Prithvi Narayan Shah merged Pokhara into his kingdom. It had by then become an important trading spot on the routes from Kathmandu to Jumla and from Tibet to India.The nearby hill villages around Pokhara are a mixed community of Khas and Gurung. Small Magar communities are also present largely in the southern outlying hills. Newar community is almost non-existent in the villages of outlying hills outside the Pokhara city limits.
Pokhara was envisioned as a commercial center by the King of Kaski in the mid 18th century A.D. when Newars of Bhaktapur migrated to Pokhara, upon being invited by the king, and settled near main business locations such as Bindhyabasini temple, Nalakomukh and Bhairab Tole. Most of the Pokhara, at the time, was largely inhabited by Khas (Brahmin, Chhetri, Thakuri and Dalits), the major communities were located in Parsyang, Malepatan, Pardi and Harichowk areas of modern Pokhara and the Majhi community near the Phewa Lake.
