Patan Durbar Square

Patan Durbar Square complex is perhaps the most photographed of the three durbar squares. Located in the heart of Patan city, this was once the palace of the kings of Patan. The square is a display of Newari architecture which reached its pinnacle during the reign of the Malla kings who were great builders and patrons of the arts. The palace has three main courtyards: the central, and the oldest, is Mul Chowk. To the west of the complex are a dozen free-standing temples of various sizes and architectural styles. Masterpieces such as the Krishna Temple, Bhimsen Temple, The Golden Temple of Hiranya Varna Mahavira, and Sundari Chowk mark the artistic brilliance of the Newar craftsmanship of that era. The Sundari Chowk, with the sunken bath of Tusha Hiti, showcases exquisite woodcarvings, as well as stone and metal sculpture. Like the other palaces, Patan Durbar Square also houses a temple dedicated to Taleju Bhawani.
