We visited Kathmandu on 26th Jan 2013. In and around Kathmandu there are 3 Durbar squares.Durbar squares are plazas in front of old Royal Palaces of Nepal. 1 is in Kathmandu, second in Patan & 3rd in Bhaktapur. All these squares are Unesco World Heritage sites.We visited all of these in 1 day excursion.
Kathmandu Durbar square also known as Hanuman Dhoka as is having a nice statue of Hanumanji.Its a huge complex with lot of temples & large clean pavement.
Patan is famous for Krishna temple, Golden temple & numerous statues of Shri Ram,Hanuman& other Hindu Gods & Goddesses.
Bhaktapur is little far off from Kathmandu (30-35 kms) having a tall 5 storeyed temple along with old palaces & monateries.
Lots of pigeons were seen in Hanuman Dhoka & in Patan Durbar square.
Though all three squares are more or less same having Pagoda style temples,and excellent wooden & metal carvings but each has something extra to offer to the visitors. I personally feel one must visit all three during a visit to Kathmandu.
