16 pillar rest house (Shorha Khutte Pati)

Shorha Khutte Pati (16 pillar rest house) located on the north-western part of the Capital, is a wind house of historical importance. Located on the path connecting Trishuli with Kathmandu, the rest house was used by the pedestrians when there was no motor able road link.

The place is known as Shorha Khutte after the rest house located at the base of a slope. The people tired of walking a long distance take rest in the 16-pillar rest house before they ascend the height. Although, in the past, it was one of the most important structure in the area, these days, it is hidden from taller buildings surrounding it and also suffers from lack of maintenance and care.
