I was met by Rita & driver who welcomed me. I felt relaxed & they made me feel at home. Rita explained the day & explained anything I wasn't sure of. Patan Square was amazing & I was very impressed with Rita's knowledge of history. Bhaktapur Square was also great to visit & even saw a live wedding. Rita made the whole tour very enjoyable & brilliant. The buildings are just beautiful with so much history. I would recommend this tour to anyone & especially ask for Rita who will make the tour brilliant !
Thanks Rita for being a great tour guide :-)

Bhaktapur Durbar Square is the royal palace of the old Bhaktapur Kingdom. It is a UNESCO world heritage site declared in 1979. The old palace is located in the current town of Bhaktapur, 13KM east of Kathmandu. I visited the place last month. I hired a Maruti at a cost of 2K NPR for both-way from Kathmandu and it took 1 hour to go to the palace. While returning, it took me about 2 hours due to huge traffic inbound to the city.

The Durbar Square was severely damaged by the earthquake in 1934 and hence appears more spacious than the others, in Kathmandu and Patan. Originally, there were 99 courtyards attached to this place, but now only 6 remain. Before the 1934 earthquake, there were 3 separate groups of temples. Currently, the square is surrounded by buildings that survived the quake. On 25 April 2015, another major earthquake damaged many buildings in the square. The main temple in Bhaktapur's square lost its roof, while the Vatsala Devi temple, famous for its sandstone walls and gold-topped pagodas, was also demolished.

It is a popular tourist place in Kathmandu. There is a nominal entry fees for foreigner. Lots of eateries are available inside the Darbar Square. There are many souvenir shops inside.
