It has been several years since visiting Durban square. I believe that it was damaged by the earthquake. Still well worth viewing.

Durbar Square is part way up a walk through some small streets. The walk to get there is part of the experience. If you are game, try a street donut. Do not expect it to be like Dunkin donuts or anything. But its a taste you wont forget either. Once you are at the squares, really take your time. Don't become overwhelmed by yet another wall frieze, or another sculpture. Appreciate the amount of time and skill it took to do that much work. Leave at least 2 hours. Have lunch at a local café. I used to think to take a sandwich or snack, but try to support the local industry and eat locally. You will need to buy a heritage type of pass that allows you access to the square and other areas as well. Cheap as chips in my opinion. but worth it at twice the cost.

This one is a sad one... Kasthamandap was one of the oldest standing structure in Nepal... Probably at least 900 years and maybe more. It was according to legend made from a giant tree... Basically it was a sort of orinetal pavilion which served many functions in its day. There used to be Tantric Sadhus hanging around there and Guru Gorakhnath, their legendary Guru was enshrine as a stone statue inside.

The bad news is that it collapsed completely during the April earthquake. Safe to visit now but juts a pile of rubble. Lets pray the Government can rebuild this place. The name Kathamndu was taken from this building.

A temple, actually a pavilion made from wood and located in Kathmandu durbar square. It is believed that just wood from a single tree was used to construct this one.
Earthquake destroyed it completely.

This is one of the most revered places in Kathmandu. Infact the city is named after this temple. It is nice to see aarti at night.
