Shanker Hotel, Kathmandu, Nepal For many centuries, Nepal was cut off from the outside world. Initially it was ruled by the Mallas but dynastic squabbles allowed Prithivi Narayan Shah to establish his Kingdom in Kathmandu. However during the tenure of the Shah dynasty, a young army general, Jung Bahadur Rana usurped power from the monarchy and established himself as the Prime Minister with powers over the monarchy. He made the prime ministerial office hereditary - passing through brothers and sons - ruthlessly suppressing all opposition, while keeping the king under his thumb. After travelling to Europe and aping the Victorian fashions of the day, Jung Bahadur launched an architectural vogue of neo-classical, Italianate palaces.

The Rana regime lasted for 104 years (1846-1951) and contributed to the country's ornate neo-classical palaces replete with a grandeur lifestyle accumulated during Jung Bahadur's travels abroad. At the turn of the 19th century, Juddha Shumsher Jung Bahadur Rana, one of the most distinguished of the powerful Rana Maharajas and a renowned builder and musician, built the most elegant palace in Kathmandu for his son, Agni Shumsher Jung Bahadur Rana. The discreet boxes set in a fantasy of Nepalese neo-romantic plastic work, gilt mirrors, red velvet and marble were imported from Italy and transported on porters' back from India. The sunburst chandeliers were constructed locally from long abandoned crates of imported crystal.
