Patan Durbar Square, Kathmandu Valley, Nepal 

PATAN


          The ancient city of Patan, lying 5km southeast of  Kathmandu, is known as the city of fine arts. The city is full of Hindu temples and Buddhist monuments. The  diversity of the medieval culture that allowed both Hinduism and Buddhism to flourish has left a rich legacy   of impressive sightseeing in this city for today's visitors.

 

 

          Patan Durbar Square, situated in the heart of the  city, constitutes the focus of visitors' attraction. The  Square is full of ancient palaces, temples and shrines,  noted for their exquisite carvings. The Patan Durbar  Square consists of three main chowks or courtyards,  the Central Mul Chowk, Sundari Chowk and Keshar  Narayan Chowk. The Sundari Chowk holds in its center   a masterpiece of stone architecture, the Royal Bath called  Tushahity. It was listed in the UNESCO World Heritage
Monument List in 1979.

These  stupas are evidence of the city's ancient religious importance.

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual
appearance. I must say that you've done a great job
with this. Additionally, the blog loads
extremely fast for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!
