Patan is also known as Lalitpur. In Nepali, Lalitpur is the "city of art." Patan is located in the south of Kathmandu, bordered by the holy river of Bagmati. Although it and the Kathmandu are administratively two cities, the expansion of the city and the newly built bridges have connected them together, and the distance between the two central cities is only five or six kilometers. It is said that Patans Mala Dynasty was earlier than Gadu and Badang in the valley, so its temple was built earlier.

Unlike the Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square is a pedestrian street. The ancient temples stand on the roads of the two emperors, and temples of various sizes vary from place to place. It is said that in the ancient city of Patan, there are more than a thousand temple buildings of various sizes. In addition to those classic buildings concentrated in the Palace Square, more small temples and small temples scattered in the streets and lanes of residential houses, can still be seen everywhere.

I prefer Patan to the chaos and crowding in Kathmandu. In the old small building, there are always people sitting in front of the house, chatting, sunbathing, and daze. There are no crowds of tourists and hawkers who sell goods. The merchants who sell beautiful bronzes or Buddha statues are just opening the door. Unless they ask, they usually just look at me silently and silently. Turning over a deep alley, you will be attracted by some strange fragrances. In the low-thickness shop, the pan is frying with small pancakes (Bara), black fish, beef tongue, oil. Fried and fragrant.

The earthquake in Nepal on April 25, 2015 focused on the eyes of the whole world. The earthquake has not only caused many people to die, but many families have been fragmented. It has also destroyed many valuable architectural art that has been included in the world cultural heritage. Wrist.
The National Day trip to Nepal in 2012 comes to mind, Monkey Temple, Durbar Square, Patan, Badgau, ancient architectural art, exquisite carving art, etc., as well as the passionate locals encountered during the trip. People are unforgettable.
Patan is the ancient city of Nepal. It is called "lalitpur", which means "city of art". It is separated from Kathmandu by a river. It is a tourist destination. In 1980, it was listed by UNESCO as one of the 18 ancient cities protected by Asia.
Patan has a long history of Buddhism, and the stupa at the four corners of the city is said to have been built by the great Buddhist monarch, Ashoka, around 250 BC. Before 1597, Patan was governed by the local aristocracy. Later, King ShivaMalla of Kathmandu occupied the city and realized the temporary unification of the valley. During the reign of the Mala Dynasty in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, Tan reached an unprecedented architectural peak.
Patan is separated from Kathmandu by a river, but it is recommended to stay here for one night, not only to ensure sufficient time for sightseeing, but also to meet different scenery in the evening and early morning. There are many hotels near Patan Durbar Square, preferably booked in advance.
