Owner description: Most towns and cities have a durbar, or central, square. Patan's is comparatively quiet, surrounded by peaceful palace courtyards, shops and pagoda temples.

Excellent place, with excellent buildings and excellent people. We went there walking from thamel (we love walking but it is too lngtoget there) you should take a taxi or may be a tour because it wasn't so easy to find all the buildings by ourselves, but we did it and enjoy it. You hace many restaurants around, but not so typical... May be because in Nepal they are not used to eat in restaurants? Lovely peolple!

spent an afternoon walking around the area, seeing alot of interesting sight, especially very different from home. I was at the square for the whole afternoon, sitting around at a corner can gives you quite some story. Architure here are also quite interesting to watch, those red bricks and wood carving are some amazing work.

I spent an afternoon in the square at Patan. It's a taxi ride from Thamel in Kathmandu but not too expensive. Lots of beautiful buildings - similar to the durbar square in Kathmandu. There are some vendors and a few restaurants where you can sit and watch the goings on in the square. If you enjoyed the durbar in Kathmandu, you should enjoy Patan. Just sitting and watching people or soaking up the culture and history was a great way to spend an afternoon.

The architecture is pretty cool, and there are a lot of shops to buy stuff at but it gets boring after being there for the whole day and you have to pay 500 rupees to actually get into the temple areas. It's a good day activity but once you've gone once then you have pretty much seen It all and it's not a quiet area at all, it's loud and crazy.
