“There are better Durbar Squares.”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

In all of Nepal, this was the place we were hassled most, sometimes relentlessly. It did spoil the experience somewhat.The square at Bhaktapur was much nicer.

“History and live”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

The durbar square was one of the memorable things we saw at Nepal, History embedded in the nowaday live. You see that people are around this square doing their business, but respect the things from the past. A must see in Kathmandu

“Heart of Kathmandu City”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

The best things in town is around this area. Fast food joints, fashion boutiques, airlines offices, big banks, good hotels, restaurants is within reach & Thamel is nearby. And so is the former Royal Palace which is now a museum.
