Swotha - Traditional Homes

Located in a quiet by lane off the Patan Durbar Square, this 95 year old Newari home has been restored to its former glory, keeping intact its cultural heritage and integrity.


By partnering with home owners and converting their old residential buildings into a modern day guest house, the restoration of the Pradhan family residence in Swotha, Patan was completed, and opened in December 2010 as the Traditional Homes.
