Create an itinerary including Kathmandu Durbar Square
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.

  • We found the Patan Durbar square to be truly beautiful, and the museum sections well maintained. As with many attractions in Nepal, it has suffered tremendously from the earthquake, yet much of it...

  • Patan Durbar Square is filled with historical places from temples to museums and fascinating nooks and crannies. Local businesses thrive there as it is a hot destination for tourists. The local people living there are very warm and welcoming and when asked will tell you all about the history of this place. When you visit the area, you will find different restaurants, cafes and even vendors that will serve you both hot & cold beverages. It is also the oldest shopping destination where you can find daily goods. The ambience of there is totally different which you will not find anywhere else. It is a must visit place when you are in K-town to have fun and spend time with your family and friends!!
