  • Beautiful square ... seems to be in a movie and in spite of the earthquake did a lot of damage remained almost everything up! Price of admission 1000rupiae! Kinda expensive as all access in nepal with the hope that the money needed for reconstruction.

  • After the earthquake, this place is not renovated yet. Everywhere you'll see construction works only. All the temples are covered with rods, bricks and cements. The only thing worth seeing is the muse...  more »

  • Historic palace and a museum with very pleasant environment... Great place to see art and architecture... Great place for refreshments.. silent environment.. you can find the cafe also... Most of the musical shows also organized there..
  • Patan durbar square has always been a special place for me. Always crowded with people and tourist. Too good to be here. Filled with ancient and historic crafts and beautiful hand crafted wooden arts. Mentioned as a world Heritage site Patan Durbar also has a museum to view the ancient history gallery of pictures and arts.
  • One of the best place to hangout in the valley. This is a historic place that will help to know about the history of Nepal. It's architecture is awesome. Also can enjoy typical Nepali/Newari traditional food here.
  • This is awesome place to visit. Everything around this place is lively. The monument are great and the food around this place is awesome. But the roads are quite small which makes it very busy.
  • It is one of the historic places in Kathmandu. It has great positive vibes, it is nearby a local market for handcrafts, it is within a historic place of Patan which has its own significance. A must visit place when you are in Kathmandu. And the square has a scenic view as his backdrop when the skies are clear.
