Trip Planner: Asia / Nepal / Central Region / Bagmati Zone / Kathmandu Valley / Kathmandu / Kathmandu Durbar Square
When in Kathmandu, don’t forget to pay a visit to Kathmandu Durbar Square, a World Heritage Site surrounded by historic buildings. Although the square has suffered extensive damage in the 2015 earthquake, many of the buildings remain standing and some will undergo refurbishments. Enjoy the traditional Nepalese architecture of the spacious square and get a feel for the Kathmandu city atmosphere. Admire the house of the Kumari, left unscathed in the earthquake, where the virgin goddess lives until reaching puberty. If you’re lucky, you may catch a glimpse of her passing by a window.

A place where you are going to know, learn and understand about Nepalese history. Many kings came and ruled here and passed away. But, this place is standing till now and expressing some view to us of that time. Though we cannot go back to the past but being here it feels like you are now in the king's era. Well the weather is fine 👌, easily accessible 😍, it's like always crowded because of its importance.
Despite the earthquake damage which is being repaired, it remains the undisputed cultural heart of Kathmandu. Not to be missed. Entrance fee is a bit steep but it's for a good cause. Bring along your passport photo to the administration office at the south side of the square to extend your admission for free for the duration of your Nepal visa.
