Kathmandu Valley 3 Royal Cities (Day Tour)

  • Bhaktapur Kathmandu
  • Patan Kathmandu
  • Sadhus

Today you will be exploring the 3 royal cities of the Kathmandu valley.  Your guide for the day will pick you up in a private vehicle after breakfast.

The first stop for the day is Kathmandu’s Durbar Square, also known as Hanuman-Dhoka square. The Durbar Square, with its old temples, palaces, epitomizes the religious and cultural life of the people.  Surrounded by both Hindu and Buddhist temples built in the pagoda style, they are embellished with intricately carved exteriors.  Most of the buildings we see here date from 15th to 18th century.  Make sure you see “Kumari (The Living Goddess) Gar”.

Next we head to the medieval temples in Patan’s Durbar Square.  Patan is filled with wood and stone carvings, metal statues, ornate architecture, including dozens of Buddhist and Hindu temples, and over 1200 monuments.

After some lunch we head to the last of the 3 royal cities, the beautiful Bhaktapur.This place is a museum of medieval art and architecture with many examples of sculpture, woodcarving and colossal pagoda temples consecrated to different gods and goddesses.  It is a conglomeration of pagoda and shikhara-style temples grouped around a fifty-five window palace of brick and wood.  The square is one of the most charming architectural showpieces of the Valley as it highlights the ancient arts of Nepal.  The golden effigies of kings perched on the top of stone monoliths, the guardian deities looking out from their sanctuaries, the wood carvings in every place possible all seem to form a well-orchestrated symphony.  Pottery and weaving are its major traditional industries.  Afterwards you will be driven back to your hotel where your tour ends.
