Amidst an old settlement in the culturally rich city of Patan, is a house that goes by the name of Tajaa Pha, literally meaning 'a high step'. Named so by the locals because of the distinct raised step adjoining the entrance to the house, Tajaa Pha has now opened its doors for guests travelling to Nepal.
The house is located in the Chhayabahal community, an essentially Newar locale, known for the Chandeshwori Temple, the Chhayabahal Pukhuu (a man-made pond built over a 100 years ago) and a Buddhist Stupa which was established by Ashoka the Great. The house overlooks all these three monuments of historic and religious significance. Living at Tajaa Pha, you will be closely interacting with the local community and will able to observe the Newar way of life --from its daily rituals to festivals and cultural events that happen throughout the year. Blending the modern and traditional, Tajaa Pha has 8 rooms, designed with a local touch and well-equipped with modern amenities. There is also a shared kitchen that guests can use and the terrace provides a 360 degree view of the Valley.
Tajaa Pha is run by the Shrestha family who offer you their warm hospitality and will ensure that you have a wonderful and enriching stay, under their roof, in a place you can call your own.
