Crowded and fascinating Makhan Tole starts at Tana Deval Temple and runs towards the busy marketplace of Indra Chowk. Makhan Tole was at one time the main street in Kathmandu and the start of the main caravan route to Tibet.

From here you can either head south to visit the Hanuman Dhoka or continue northeast up Makhan Tole back towards Thamel.

The area is filled with shops for your every need and restaurants that have great view into the Hanumandhoka Durbar square, specially the Taleju Temple. Sano Pashupatinath, is also present in this area.

It is situated north of the famous Durbar Square. This area is popular among shoppers because here thangka, paubha and other fine arts are sold by numerous dealers. A thangka is a form of art, widespread in Tibet. It is a piece of silk on which Buddhist deities or mandalas are embroidered. A paubha represents the Nepali version of thangka - a scroll upon which the painting is done.

When you are in Thamel area don't forget to reach Makhan. It's a beautiful street with so many small small shops and structures. Some are broken after the earthquake and some are about to fall but they are given external support with the help of good wood logs.

Walk on this historical street ,during our Kathmandu city tour ,early January 2015.
It said that this particular street once served as a main road of the old Kathmandu city , caravans from Tibet bypass here .
We didn't pay much attention , because the view is just the same as almost all of streets in Kathmandu , busy with shops and peoples..
The Makhan Tole starts from Tana Deva temple towards the Indra Chowk.
