Full description
After being collected from your hotel, you will begin your day exploring the beautiful city of Patan, which lies in the Lalitpur district. The best point to start your sightseeing is Patan Durbar Square, which includes the Royal Palaces. These are temples which depict the amazing skills of the area's ancestors. Bhimsen Temple is dedicated to Bhimsen, the god of trade and business, and from there you will explore the Vishwanath Temple, which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Krishna Mandir is a temple dedicated to Lord Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. You will then explore the Golden Temple, a unique monastery which is a few minutes’ walk from Durbar Square. Your next destination will be Bhaktapur, which is the third-most major town in the valley and the best place to start sightseeing in Bhaktapur. It covers a larger area than the Durbar Squares of Kathmandu and Lalitpur, and is far less crowded. After this exploration you will encounter the Mahaboudha Temple and Rudra Varna Mahabihar, before you end your sightseeing for the day and drive back to Kathmandu.
