Patan Durbar Square

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by Alan Ingram on July 12, 2001

The Durbar Square (central square) of the ancient royal city of Patan is comparable to, but different from, that of Kathmandu and is also a complex of medieval temples.

Originally a separate entity, Patan is now a suburb of the ever expanding metropolis of Kathmandu and is easily reached by bicycle or tempo/taxi - a good day's outing.

Many tourists prefer to stay in Patan as it is quieter and less congested than Kathmandu.
