Patan Square is a very huge building. The Black Sky Temple is very exquisite. There are many unpleasant things here in the earthquake. It has been repaired for a long time. The guide of the Black Sky Temple is also quite rich.
Krishna Mandir, also known as Krishna Mandir, is located to the northwest of Patan Durbar Square.
It was built in 1636 AD. According to legend, King Patan dreamed of Rishna God of Darkness, so he built the Temple of Darkness where he saw in his dream. The temple building adopts the Indian Shikhara style (Shikhara style), which is in the style of a minaret, with a golden gilt pagoda on top. A total of 5 floors, except for the top of the tower, it is entirely built of stone without a piece of wood nails. It is like a finely crafted stonework, known as the "miracle of Nepalese architectural art".
An earthquake in 2015 destroyed the appearance of this temple. During the maintenance, I can only look at the general view of the temple surrounded by railings.
There is a stone pillar in front of the Heitian Temple. Above the stone pillar is the seated bronze statue of the golden-winged condor Garuda or Garuda Statue in Hinduism, facing the temple.
The two black temples coexist in the ancient city of Patan, respecting the same god and echoing each other. The so-called why, where to go, is unknown! Built entirely of stone, it is very eye-catching on Durbar Square in Patan.
The most spectacular on Patan Durbar Square is the Krishna Temple, also known as Krishna Temple, built in 1636 AD. According to legend, King Sidi Nara Singh Mara of Patan dreamed of Krishna Krishna, and built this temple where he saw it in his dream. The temple is in the shape of a minaret and has 5 floors. It is completely built of stone except for the top of the tower. There are no wooden nails. It is like a finely carved stone handicraft, which can be called a miracle of Nepal's architectural art. We stood in the square and looked around. The tall temple was built on a three-story square base with two pairs of stone lions on the base facing east. Along the steps, the first floor is supported by 8 carved stone pillars on all sides, the second and third floors are composed of 8 small pavilions, and the fourth floor has 4 pavilions. Above the 4 pavilions, a pagoda stands majestic. Towering, the top is crowned with a large jinbao top. On each floor, visitors climbed up to overlook the panoramic view of the square, or watched the lifelike sculptures of idols, birds, and beasts among the railings of the pavilion. In front of the Black Sky Temple, there is a stone pillar and a Hua watch. On the top of the Hua watch column, there is a knelt on the top of the column. There is a bird king Gruda with arms crossed on his chest. This gold-winged bird king hewn from a whole stone is said to be the mount of Vishnu . There is a tall column in the center of the square opposite it, and the top of that is Yuganalandra. Statues of King Mara and his queen. The king knelt there with a lotus flower on his head and a cobra canopy. This golden statue has been facing the king's palace since 1700.
The smoky temple in the light rain is very beautiful, but when I walked all the way from Tamil, I felt tired and didn't stay too much. It was a pity. The second and third floors of the temple consist of three miniature pavilions in a row. The pavilions have Indian style spires, which are very beautiful
