Stone Inscription

A stone inscription on a single large stone is found on the outer palatial walls of Hanuman Dhoka (right across from the Vishnu temple). Pratap Malla had the inscription installed here in 1664 . It is a notable piece, as there are 15 different languages in this engraving dedicated to Kalika (or little Kali). The inscription includes Tibetan, Arabic, Greek, Roman, Persian, French, Newar and Sanskrit scripts, among others.

An interesting myth about the stone inscription is that if you are able to read and understand the entire inscription, milk will flow from the spout in the middle.
