Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and the Kathmandu Valley is the political and cultural hub of the Kingdom. Founded in the 8th century AD by King Gun Kamadeva at the confluence of the Bagmati and Bishnumati rivers, the founding point is the Kashta (wood) Mandap (temple) built where two old trade routes crossed, and now the oldest building in the city. The Europhile first minister of Kathmandu in the 19th century, Jung Bahadur Rana, built many classical looking buildings and palaces in the city, in contrast to those of Newari style that existed before. The urban sprawl that makes up modern Kathmandu is in fact two cities, Pathan and Kathmandu.
