On May 25, 2008, after 240 years of reign, the only Hindu monarchy in the world became the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal. A few days after the king left the palace, it was transformed into the Museum Narayanhiti.
The people lived for a long time in an atmosphere of tension. There were ongoing disputes between the old monarchy and the country’s Maoist rebels, who wanted to establish a Communist regime.
Today the country is still in its infancy for a multi-party democracy, but a significant step was taken on September 20th, 2015 when the first Constitution of Nepal was promulgated. The political time is one of new beginnings.
