Patan Durbar Square पाटन दरबार क्षेत्र, Patan (Lalitpur)

Take a walk through Patan Durbar Square पाटन दरबार क्षेत्र, a social and spiritual center of town. Badly damaged during the devastating earthquake in 2015--which completely destroyed five temples--the sites here have been sensitively restored and stand in testament to the Nepalese spirit and community. Stroll between the numerous landmarks, admiring the Buddhist and Hindu temples and their idiosyncratic, yet somehow charmingly united and complementary architecture and artworks. With our custom trip planner, Patan (Lalitpur) attractions like Patan Durbar Square पाटन दरबार क्षेत्र can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

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.
