Gorkha, also known as Prithbhinarayan or Prithvinarayan, is a municipality in central Nepal created in 1996 and named after King Prithvi Narayan Shah, who was born in Gorkha and united and founded modern Nepal.
The old royal palace (Gorkha Durbar), Gorakhnath and Kalika (temple of the goddess Kali) are the main attractions. The lower palace (Tallo Durbar) and a modern park are other major attractions.
It is also the starting point of the Mount Ganesh trekking route. Gorkha Hospital and Aap Pipal Hospital are the two hospitals and Drabya Saha and Gorkha Multiple Campus are the two campuses serving the population.
In 2009, the name "Prithibhinarayan municipality" was changed to Gorkha municipality.
