Asan is the junction of different roads; street market on the road and lots of people passingby makes it more crowded

This is the area between Thamel and Durbar square. This place is really so busy all the time. So many small small temples are here. Some vegetable vendors also sit here. Some local tea and spices are also available here.

Best buy for local items in cheap and quality always search first. There are many narrow gallis so be aware of motarbike passing through. I cannot belive how government cannot band those wheel to drive there. Rubish is all over the place.
