King's column

recommendation by susanna-alaitz

The tall column in front of the Taleju Temple is topped by a golden figure of King Yoganarendra Malla (1684 – 1705). The king is in kneeling position over a lotus bud and is protected by a cobra. A small bird rests on the head of the cobra.
The kings’ statue faces his palace since 1700, and legend says that as long as the bird remains on the head of the cobra, the king may still return to his palace.
