Patan Square has the least amount of damage and there’s a wonderful museum. Also the eateries and tea/coffee hangouts are great here.

The exquisite door and window carvings at the Patan Durbar Square were simply beautiful! Worth visiting even though there's still a lot of scaffolding and rebuilding at the Patan Durbar Square.

Patan's Durbar Square was filled with the most fascinating monuments, temples, structures, piles of debris and masses of people. There was so much to see it seemed that you could wander for hours. The earthquake destruction was saddening, but the focus to rebuild was heartening.

It seems that this place is not yet back to normal after the earthquake 2 years ago. Renovation in progress for some building. It's a super dusty place (in october) and this place is so crowded.
