Yetachapari is a long inn/resthouse that one can encounter on the south of the Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Nowadays, people prefer to call it Lamopati (a Nepalese word meaning long inn) rather than Yetachapari. Many of us might have had no idea about its original name before this.
This two-storeyed building was used to sit, to have an audience of the king and observe cultural programmes held in front of the palace or dabali (the traditional stage like space). However, it is still used to sit and observe several festivals and events. Even when there are no festivals or any events, one can simply enjoy the spectacular views of the Royal palaces and temples of Bhaktapur Durbar Square standing behind them.
Did you know that this Yetachapari was bigger than this?
Yes, it was big and was twice bigger than this. It was after the earthquake of 1990 that its reconstruction was made a bit far from the palace which traverses to a good space at Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Well, you couldn’t find such long inns as Yetachapari in Patan and Basantapur Durbar Square.
