It's sad to see the damage to the beautiful old historical temples after the 2015 earthquake. Very interesting and full of rich history.

It is so sad to still see the damage caused by the earthquake in 2015. Some reconstruction is going on but it will be a long time before it will be back to its glory.

A must see place in Kathmandu despite the extensive damage from the earthquake. Do not take pictures of people pretending to be Swamis as they are not real ones and just want money.

The historic buildings, small museum and shops make this location worth the visit. However, many of the temples were badly damaged in the earthquake and they are still under construction.

We were there on a Sunday afternoon and the place was teeming with life. From the craft sellers who displayed their ware in neat rows, to groups of tourists and lone travelers, and families on an outing. Many places are still undergoing reconstruction after the 2015 earthquake, and the entrance fee of 1000 rupees for foreigners goes towards the work and encouraging the hospitable people you meet. I was surprised that visitors could access the small courtyard of the Kumari’s home and could imagine her looking down from the small windows above. To get more fully into the atmosphere, you may wish to approach the Square from the north where the narrow cobbled lanes are packed with locals shopping and brave motorcyclists squeezing in.

Thank Siewwan
