TOP Destinations: Patan

January 25, 2015  •  Leave a Comment


Patan completes the triangle formed along with Kathmandu and Bhaktapur of the three rival city-states which dominated and competed for the valley in the Newari golden era.

As such, Patan also features a prominent Durbar Square with a magnificent architecture collection of temples and palaces where nowadays people gather around just to chat or flirt. Patan street life is rich and shaped by interconnecting courtyards where anyone can easily hide or just become truly... lost.

Around Patan, several typical Newari villages such as Bungamati and Khokana present everyday traditional activities where women spin and weave wool next to their brick houses.

You can see the highlights of this third vertex of the valley by watching my latest album here.
