PATAN-LALITPUR

The ancient name of Patan is Lalitpur, meaning city of beauty. It is indeed a city of beauty and grace and is planned on a circular format with Buddhist stupa at each of the four points of the compass. The city is three kilometers south-east of Kathmandu across the southern bank of the river Bagmati. Like Kathmandu, its most photogenic centre of attraction is its Durbar Square complex, situated right in the middle of the market place. The city is full of Buddhist monuments and Hindu temples, with fine bronze gateways, guardian deities also and wonderful carvings. Noted for its craftsmen and metal workers, it is also known as the city of artists. The city is believed to have been built during the reign of Vira Deva in 299 A.D. Some of Patan's more important monuments are as follows:

  • Patan City
  • Patan Durbar Square
  • Patan Museum 
  • Golden Temple
  • Rudrabarna Mahabihar
  • Mahabuddha Temple 
Patan City:
All Tour guided by expert guides towards Patan area, which is situated on the south of Kathmandu, and it is separated by a bridge over the River Bagmati. Patan is also known as Lalitpur meaning city of Arts. As you enter the old Palace courtyard (Durbar) the tall terracotta house looks fascinating with intricate window carvings, and the Stone Temple of Krishna with the pillar of Garuda the vehicle of Lord Vishnu and as well of Lord Krishna.
After the historic visit a short drive leads towards the end of Patan area at Tibetan Refugee camp where one can observe the happy-cheerful workers weaving carpets. This place was established in the early 1970's after the Chinese invasion in Tibet where a great number of Tibetan migrated here, and the Nepal Government established this place as a permanent camp or settlement for the Tibetan Refugees.
