✔ The Sen dynasty is mostly from the Magar community in today’s world, there are facts that they ruled this kingdom also, in a way some have claimed that this could be a Kirat dynasty but it’s not mentioned in the history.

✔ One of its borders is located in Dhanusa around the Kamala River and it’s believed that the kingdom was ruled from this Durbar itself.

✔ More authentic architectural remains than other similar sites, we can see eight edges at the base of this Durbar so how would the Palace look with a geometric base of eight distinct edges?

✔ Massive boulders used to construct the Palace are not from this area, it is said that the boulders were brought in from Koshi Bank and the Terai regions.

✔ These massive boulders would be extremely challenging for people to carry.

✔ As told by the elders of this region, there is a place called Dhunge Danda and the other one would be in the lower regions around the Terai belt. It is also believed that they were transported from there.

✔ These rocks also don’t look like they could be carried by men, it’s said that these were transported with the help of elephants, and the carvings and artistry are said to have been done by the people.

✔ There is a rock that is worshipped as a goddess (Dhoke Devi) and the king is back from the section left, kings used to enter the Palace and they paid their respects to the goddess before entering the Palace.

✔ We can see a temple near the Chaudandi Durbar, after climbing a slight mound from the Durbar area, we can easily reach the temple.

✔ Bishashai Kalika temple which is considered the most important religious site in the Udaipur district. it’s connected with Chaudandi Durbar both physically and historically.

✔ Chaudandi Durbar is certainly a major heritage related to the unification of Nepal, the efforts they’ve made to preserve the Durbar are laudable but compared to other equally important sites, we don’t see many tourists there.

✔ If promoted properly this site can certainly attract a lot of tourists and visitors but there is a need for hotels and lodges near the Durbar area.
