What people are saying:

Although some Durbar Squares after the earthquake are still being reconstructed and newly built, they do not affect people's appreciation at all. The small streets and alleys feel very good! There are a lot of things sold in the alleys, all kinds of artistic things, the price is not expensive! The local ice cream is also delicious. For tickets, there is a half price discount for Chinese passports! If you are lucky, you can see local festival celebrations in the afternoon. We had a local Nepalese guide who took us to visit this magical ancient building complex. It's almost like a movie from India. This magical place also has many colorful locals and religious places. It is strongly recommended that you visit it.

    A nice to see the old architectures

    The old architectures bring you to the past and give us a little idea how people were at that time and their mode of living too.
