Kag Khar Ruined Palace

This is the ruined palace of Kag Khar dynasty that used to house 108 rooms. Historically, Kagbeni used to be an important fortified palace along the "Salt Trade Route". Even at present, the layout of the town bears testimony of war and reflects its border position. The dark alleys give way to small interior courtyards. The streets and the tunnels appear to wind their way through the sturdy whitewashed houses of the old town, constructed as a fortress as a means of defense against wind and bandits. The ruins of this old fort at the centre symbolizes the fact that this was once an important place located strategically at the junction of two valleys; Mustang and Muktinath.
