Kathmandu Valley - Patan - Durbar (Palace) Square.
Tempeldichte am Durbar Square.
"Patan has a long Buddhist history and the four corners of the city are marked by stupas said to have been erected by the great Buddhist emperor Ashoka around 250 BC. Later inscriptions refer to palaces in the city in the 5th century AD, although Patan's great building boom took place under the Mallas in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries."
Tempel am Durbar Square.
"Patan's central Durbar Square is packed with temples, with a far greater concentration of architecture per square metre than in Kathmandu or Bhaktapur. Numerous other temples of widely diverse style, as well as many bahals (Buddhist monasteries), are scattered around the fascinating old town."
Taleju Bell and Krishna Mandir.
"Patan makes a great day trip from Kathmandu. It is possible to stay the night here, although it's so close to Kathmandu that it's not really necessary. The choice of accomodation and restaurants is far more limited, but on the bright side the old town is quieter and less polluted than Kathmandu and you'll likely have the town largely to jourself at the beginning and end of the day."

Die Tempel auf und um den Durbar Square in Patan sind weder denkmalgeschützt noch abgesperrt,...
...sondern werden ins tägliche Leben der Menschen direkt einbezogen.
