A must go In Kathmandu Nov 02, 2012
Kathmandu Durbar Square is an old heritage site and preserved site of UNESCO. It is located at central part of Kathmandu Valley and 15 minutes walking distance from Thamel and vicino - next to Freak Street(a Hippie Paradise of once upon a time). In this Durbar Square we could see the arts, crafts and gradually changes of architectureal heritage of 12th century to till date. It is spread in quite big area and connected with all satellite site nearby for heritage walk. One need to pay to enter the site of core area. The square shows the temples, architecure, religion, people and power of the time. The main palace was a royal palace of the kings of century old time and converted to historical museum in one quarter area of the palace. Another half area of core Durbar Square is not allowed for outers as it concerns for some Tantric, Religion and Tresures concerns. I have included some pictures of square that taken in various time.

A nice place in the center of the city. This site is a world heritage site that holdsthe palaces of the Malla and Shah kings of older nepal.

All the squares and temples are dated back to around 1000 A.D. and upto 1700 A.D., each king adding his mark on this nice square.

Worth while if you have a couple of hours in the city.
