Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, has a glorious history which dates back to two thousand years ago. The bowl shaped city is the cultural hub of the country and probably the biggest tourist destination of Nepal. Kathmandu originally is home town of the Newari community but has now become home to many more ethnic groups. The city itself is houses many historical monuments, architectural wonders and exotic tourist destinations. The famous durbar squares of Kathmandu are world famous and the Kathmandu valley is a Cultural World Heritage site listed by UNESCO in 1979.
The square is the hub of palaces, courtyards and temples that are built between the 12th and the 18th century by the ancient Malla Kings of Nepal. It is the social, religious and urban center of the city. Taleju Temple, dedicated to Kalbhairab, the god of destruction, thenine story palace, Coronation Nasal Chowk, the statue of King Pratap Malla, the Big Bell, Big Drum and the Jagnnath Temple are themost interesting things to observe on this Square. The residence of the Living Goddess, (Kumari) is situated in the vicinity of Hanuman Dhoka Palace. The building has beautifully carved wooden balconies and windows. Kumari may just greet us from her balcony window.
Since the Kathmandu durbar square is centrally located in the valley, it's within walking distance from most of the hotels in Thamel. But the transportation will be provided for those who stay outside of the Thamel region. You can take as much time to fully take in durbar square’s beauty!
