Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan (Lalitpur)

Take a walk through Kathmandu Durbar Square, a social and spiritual center of town. Badly damaged during the devastating earthquake in 2015--which completely destroyed five temples--the sites here have been sensitively restored and stand in testament to the Nepalese spirit and community. Stroll between the numerous landmarks, admiring the Buddhist and Hindu temples and their idiosyncratic, yet somehow charmingly united and complementary architecture and artworks. With our custom trip planner, Patan (Lalitpur) attractions like Kathmandu Durbar Square can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • This historical place is stunning with lots of temples. You can spend the whole day looking at the craftsmanship and the sculptures. Even if u get hungry you won’t have to go far. There are lots of delicious food serving restaurants.
  • This is an amazing place to visit, especially so for me as I visited here back in 1993. So many years ago and certainly before the earthquake which sadly destroyed/damaged so many of the beautiful buildings. However many but not all have been rebuilt to or almost to their former glory. Much of which the new entrance charge pays for. A visit is highly recommended 👍
