Among the latter kings of Patan, Siddhi Narasimha Malla (1618-61), Sri Niwas Malla (1661-85) and Yog Narendra Malla (1685-1706) added to the grandeur of the palace complex. Outside the Patan Durbar Square, there are numerous other important monuments, such as the Maha Buddha terra-cotta Shikhara temple constructed at the beginning of the 17th century, Hiranya Varna Mahavihara, or the Golden Temple, built in the early 15th century.

The temple lies on the bank of the sacred Bagmati River while aryaghat, a place built for cremating the bodies of Hindus, also lies near. The sacred temple has been listed in the UNESCO’s World heritage site. Non Hindus are strictly prohibited from entering the temple. Continue with the tour by visiting Boudhanath Stupa.

The Stupa is surrounded by one hundred and eight small niches accommodating the icons of Buddhas, Bodhisatavas and other female deities. The serene environment in the surrounding of the Stupa has added to its attractions. Listed in the UNESCO’s world heritage site, the huge sized stupa is one of the prime sites for tourists and pilgrims. Start tour of Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Among the three major cities of Kathmandu valley, Bhaktapur retains some of its ancient way of life, reminding you of what the entire Kathmandu valley must have looked like during the medieval period. The remarkable architecture, the exquisite woodcarvings and metal craft that can be seen around the city takes one back to the time of the Malla rulers who patronized art like no other dynasty. The pagoda style temples rise above the Bhaktapur skyline, the Pottery square, the Palace (Durbar) Square which dates back to the 12th century, where devotees still celebrate their centuries old festivals and the temple squares that still remain vibrant, are Bhaktapur’s major attractions.

The stupa Symbolize the body of the Buddha, which is nothing other than the cosmos itself. The Swayambhu Maha Chaitya with the semi-closed eyes of the Buddha overlooking the valley from all four directions is the most prominent monument and landmark of the valley. The historical origins of this great stupa are obscure, but it is believed to have been built during the Lichchhavi period. The main stupa is a huge white dome in the form of a flattened hemisphere.

Kathmandu Durbar Square in Kathmandu is the most extensive of the three royal palace squares, not only in size but also in scale of its open space and structures. It contains 60 important monuments, of which the majority date from the 17th and 18th centuries. King Mahendra Malla (1560-74 A.D) constructed numerous temples inside the palace complex and in its vicinity. Prominent among them are the temple of Mahendreshwar Mahadev, the Jagannath Temple and the grand Taleju Bhavani Temple. Nearby, the Jagannath Temple, built in the 16th century, is known for the fascinating erotic carvings of human sexual union on the wooden struts. The Hanuman Dhoka Durbar monument zone encompasses marvelous edifices built by King Pratap Malla (1641-74 A.D). King Pratap Malla had erected a stone statue of Hanuman, the bravest of the brave monkey-god in the epic Ramayana, in front of his palace to drive away evil spirits and be victorious in wars. This palace later came to be known as the Hanuman Dhoka Durbar, or the palace guarded by God Hanuman. This palace square is surrounded by many important monuments, such as the resident temple of the Living Goddess Kumari; the Kasthamandup, or Maru Sattal (which is totally destroyed during April 2015 earthquake in Nepal.
