If you liked the gossip about Sharmila Malla, you will really enjoy the fact that the recent kings in the Shah dynasty were not of pure blood since Rajendra Bikram Shah. They are descendants of a brahmin widow from Benares.

Did you know that the valley is no longer the centre of Nepal? In terms of population the biggest city is Kathmandu. But the second biggest city in Nepal is Pokhara, and then Lalitpur.
