  • The most popular temple of Patan Durbar Square, a great work of art and a popular site during Krishnastami.
  • Jai shri krishna,
  • Historical Place Krishna Temple was built by Malla king Siddhi Narsingh Malla. This temple is quite famous for its architectural design.
  • A temple with historic value. Built in Shikhara structure, the temple has 21 gajurs and is claimed to have been built from one stone. The cravings in the temple tells a lot about hindu religion, it's God and goddesses.
  • "Mind your head while entering there.." . Marvelous architecture... mesmerizing stone sculpture..
