What people are saying:

Although Durbar Square in Patan is not as big as the squares in Kathmandu and Badgang, the old buildings are more dense and concentrated, and its architectural art is also very superb and exquisite. It occupies a place in the history of world architecture and is called "open-air museum". There is a market selling souvenirs and local specialties near the square, so you can visit and play together. Unfortunately, on April 25, 2015, a magnitude 8.1 earthquake occurred in Nepal, and most of the buildings in Patan Durbar Square were damaged. Among them, the Khalisanka Temple and the Charnarayan Temple completely collapsed, and the Yuganalandra ·The top statue of Mara King Pillar was dropped and damaged.
