By the aforementioned time, our guide will come to pick you at your hotel. We drive to the southern city of Kathmandu valley, Patan. Patan is a paradise for art lovers where they explore the detailing of fine art itched in buildings, temples, idols, and stupas. Buddhist followers can find Patan more appealing and intriguing. We reach to Patan Gate, an entry gate for Patan Dubar Square. We explore the outer-courtyard and its area. There are temples, old buildings decorated with the finest art and wood carving with the finest details. We visit Krishna Temple, built from carved stone in Shikhar style. This temple has 21 golden pinnacles and 3 tiers dedicated to every 3 gods. Krishna (Vishnu’s incarnation) on first, Shiva on the second, and Lokeshwor (Avalokiteshvara) on the third tier is found. We visit other temples like Bhimsen Temple, Vishwanath Temple, and others.
After exploration, we enter to Patan Durbar. There are 3 chowks (junction) inside; Keshav Narayan Chowk, Mul Chowk, and Sundari Chowk. Mul Chowk lies at the center of the palace. Keshav Narayan Chowk lies to the north and Sundari Chowk to the south of Mul Chowk. These chowks are full of exquisite carving and beautiful displays of ancient Newari architecture. Later, we visit the Golden Temple (Kwa Bahal) which is a 5-minute walk from the square. This is a magnificent Buddhist monastery with gilded metal plates covering most of its frontage. The monastery is the finest example of the blends of Hindu art with Buddhist architecture.
