    At the southwest side of Durbar Square, Patan stands an octagonal Krishna Temple, built in black stone in Indian shikara style. Octagonal, because Krishna is the 8. incarnation of Vishnu. The temple is surprisingly reasonable undamaged by the earthquake in 2015, compared to other 3-4 temples in the area, which burst more or less together.

    This 8-sided stone temple is located near the south entrance of Patan’s Durbar Square. It’s quite different from the wooden buildings in the rest of Patan’s Durbar Square.  more »

Where to stay in Patan (Lalitpur)

With its array of palaces and temples, Patan (Lalitpur) cannot be said to live in the shadow of Kathmandu when it comes to places to visit and things to see. However, many more visitors decide to stay in the nearby capital, which offers an extensive range of hotels and guesthouses, particularly in the Thamel area. But Patan (Lalitpur) itself--a little quieter, particularly in the evening--offers a good selection of places to stay, including hotels, hostels, and guesthouses across the central area, close to the main square.
