  • I visited on a private trip. I don't know the history or the background of the building, but it was a strange place that would calm me down just by looking at it. I thought it would be nice to see local students and old people sitting in the shade, just spending their time in the shade. It's like a set in a movie.

  • The unique architecture of this place that has survived the earthquake makes a big impression. Well preserved ornaments on the walls and religious symbolism.

  • peaceful and good place
  • Spiritual place in Kathmandu Durbar Square where locals visit more often. Attractive place around Durbar Square due to people busy taking pictures with large number of pigeons. This place is often crowded with locals and tourists. Offers different vibe around it.
