1. Traffic strategy - "Two stations near "Ratna Park" station in Kathmandu can take minibus to Patan (NAC Bus Stop and Ratna Park Micro Bus Stop); 2. Patanduba Square was not seriously damaged by the earthquake, and the most amazing "Newarystyle buildings" are still intact, so the number of visitors is large, and tickets for 1000 rupees are also very strict; 3. In the center of the palace, as well as the Patan Museum, it must be the focus of the visit, but if you are not particularly interested in Nepal's imperial history or ancient architecture (especially for poor tourists), you can also not enter the palace and take pictures outside to mark the memory.
Patanduba Square is also an important Temple Square in Kathmandu. It is not far from Durba Square. It takes about 10 minutes to walk. The square is very large, tourists such as weaving sacrifices, visitors are numerous, less damaged in the earthquake, you can see its magnificent spectacle.
Patan was founded in the 3rd century A.D. and is the oldest city in Nepal. There are 136 large and small Buddhist temples and 55 Newarylike temples, which are known as the oldest Buddhist city in the world. In 1980, it was listed by UNESCO as one of the 18 key protected ancient cities in Asia. The car stopped on the street a little way from Patanduba Square, and we walked to Duba Square. Still narrow streets, streaming motorcycles, leisurely people, a lot of old buildings scattered in the newly built buildings, the streets are lined with many temples of different sizes and incense. Arriving at the rectangular Patanduba Square in the east, west, north and south, we can still see the numerous temples. Patanduba Square is also one of Nepal's world cultural heritage sites. Apart from the ancient palace, the square has a variety of temples that make people feel like they have entered a religious shrine, where Nepal's most amazing "Newarylike architecture" concentrated display. The so-called "Newarystyle" architectural style (also translated as Nival) is a combination of the two styles of India and Nepal, which is the most distinctive architectural model in Nepal. The temples of this architectural style are mostly wooden, with stone and brick foundations and multi-storey roof towers as the main body. The roof is usually two to three stories, up to five stories, wide eaves and inclined roof, four-sided symmetrical. The eaves, beams and columns, doors and windows are decorated with beautiful wood carvings. The temple is surrounded by stone steps, which are guarded by stone lions, stone elephants or monkeys. In such a dazzling architectural style, in the background of many gods and unpredictable changes, it is difficult for us to understand the vastness and depth of Hinduism. The grandeur of architecture, the color of religion and the beauty of sculpture can only be seen from the outside. The most spectacular one on the square is the Black Sky Temple, also known as the Krishna Temple, which was built in 1636 A.D. The temple is a steeple with five stories. It is built entirely of stone except for the top of the tower. It is like a fine carved stone handicraft. It can be regarded as a miracle of Nepalese architectural art.
Compared with Kathmandu or Buktapur, Patan is the most intimate ancient city designed. In the morning, taxi arrived here, 400RS, ticket purchase, 1000RS. Along the route recommended by LP, I was surprised to find that there were signs on the edge of every monument. This was not seen in other places. There were not many people and no tourists in the whole ancient city. There are many people and not many local people. During the holidays, many people went home. The Desai syllable is somewhat similar to the Chinese Spring Festival. Seventy-eight of the shops on both sides of the road are closed, but the small partners here bought handmade, wood carving, pure handmade, although not very delicate, but quite lovely. In Patanduba Square, pigeons gather around the hall. Pigeons feed on 20-50RS pigeons, a plate of corn and wheat grains, and one pigeon pulls a fat "body" which is rare elsewhere. Nepal is a paradise for animals. To the east of Duba Square is the palace, the Talai Pearl Temple, the Golden Temple, the Manga fountain and so on. To the west, there are temples with different shapes. The most famous ones are the Black Sky Temple, the Black Sky Temple, the Harisanka Temple, the Vishnu Temple, the Vishnut Temple and so on. You can see it along the route recommended by LP. The ancient city of Patan is called the open-air museum .
Nepal, because it is the extension of Tibet, also ancient and mysterious, simple and simple, can also see under the blue sky, the sacred snow mountain beautiful lake, is also the city of temples, the kingdom of gods, belief above all places.... However, the two lands separated by the Himalayas are quite different. Although the average altitude is 4000 meters, Nepal is the country with the greatest difference in the world's surface elevation. So the altitude of Kathmandu and Bokala Valley is only 1300 and 800, so the air transparency here is not pure, there is no blue sky and white clouds, especially in Kathmandu, where dust is flying in the city. The sky was filled with a thick haze of light brown. Although it is easy to see snowy mountains without suffering from high rebellion and without being fully armed in the desert and uninhabited wilderness, the purity, holiness and shock of the snowy mountains seen here are by no means comparable to those seen in Tibet. Only through hardship and daring to climb, can we see the most beautiful scenery.) Although the people of the two places are very warm and simple, one is talking about Namaste and the other is talking about Zahidel, they are two completely different nationalities, from skin color, appearance and clothing. Although occasionally they can see pedestrians and monks in Tibetan clothes, they still feel India with their eyes full, after all, only India. Nepal is the country with the deepest impact. But there is one thing in common, that is, faith. Everyone has his own religious beliefs, whether Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, here can also coexist in harmony. It is said that Nepal is a country with a strong sense of happiness (Bhutan is the highest). A "Waiting for the Wind" has made Nepal a holy place for many tourists to find happiness. But do people here feel very happy? Looking at the crowded and noisy people in the streets of Kadu, I don't know. But during these days of travel, I feel very "happy" lying by the swimming pool and looking at the Himalayan snowy mountains in the reclining chair, running forward to the sky on the slopes of the Salangko Mountains, looking at Lake Fava with a paraglider, holding over a hundred thousand nickels "splashing money like earth" in my hand, and looking at Kadu as a capital in the state of China in the 1980s, watching Bokara wear it.

This is the most famous Duba Square in Kathmandu. It is mainly built between the 16th and 19th centuries. It used to be the main road of traffic in Kathmandu. The square is not big, but there are many people coming. Many people come to wait for the living goddess to appear in the afternoon. Tickets can also handle multi-day tickets.
The 1,000 rupee ticket is unique in that there is a Palace Museum of Patan in Duba Square. Several Hindu temples here are open to visitors.
Kathmandu Patanbad Gang each has a Duba Square, of which Patanduba Square is the most artistic and exquisite. The whole scenic area is like an open-air museum, full of ancient buildings. Patanduba Square is one of Nepal's world cultural heritage sites. Apart from the ancient palace, the square is lined with temples, and the Patan Palace Museum occupies the entire eastern part of the square. The western part of the square is densely populated with temples, which are far away from the palace. I prefer Patanduba Square to Kathmandu Duba Square. I like its tranquility and art.
