Overview:

The Bhaktapur-Patan day tour is an amazing way to spend time inside Kathmandu valley. Patan and Bhaktapur have histories and recollections of being a state with their own government in the past. It is now preserved and maintained as a UNESCO-listed world heritage site. Although the tour will last just one day, it will take you to historical sites. It combines the two most significant historical locations in Nepal and serves as a representation of the country’s long-standing cultures, traditions, arts, and architecture. The greatest way to see these cities is on foot. It’s wonderful to see and fascinating to explore the tiny pathways that connect one courtyard to the next.

The Bhaktapur and Patan Full Day Sightseeing tour takes visitors to the historic centers of Bhaktapur and Patan, including Bhaktapur Durbar Square, and Patan Durbar Square. Bhaktapur is the city of Devotee. Bhaktapur is home to a small community, vivid festivals, wooden and stone crafts, temples with beautiful architecture and lovely ponds, mask dances performed to traditional Newari music, and ancient rituals and practices. There are four squares inside Bhaktapur Durbar Square i.e. Durbar Square, Pottery Square, Taumadi Square, and Dattatreya Square. A Buddhist monastery, beautiful palaces, courtyards, royal baths, statues, pagodas, temples modeled after Shikhara, and outstanding architecture may all be found at the Bhaktapur Durbar Square. It is a huge collection of stone art, metal art, wood carving, terracotta art, and architectural showpieces.

Bhaktapur-Patan Heritage tour offers to explore the Patan Durbar Square. Another historic royal palace in the Patan area is Patan Durbar Square. There are opportunities to learn about Lalitpur’s history, culture, and wonders of art and architecture at Patan Durbar Square. The region is incredibly wealthy and well-known for its metal and woodworking crafts. Moreover, Patan is proud of its thangka and Pauba painters, whose work is in high demand throughout the world. In addition, Patan Durbar Square contains monuments and shrines that are both beautiful and significant historically and spiritually. You can explore places like Mul Chowk and Sundari Chowk as well as attractions like the Golden Temple, Bhimsen Temple, and Krishna Temple.

Monument in Bhaktapur Durbar Square

Chardham

The Char Dham temples are a group of four temples that are regarded as the spot that aids in salvation or moksha. There are four such temples that are regarded as Char Dham temples in Bhaktapur as well. Because the original Char Dham temples are far away, the temples were then built for the convenience of the general people. Thus, King Bhupatindra Malla insisted on having these temples built inside the Bhaktapur Palace’s courtyard.

Rameshwor temple

Rameshwar, a Gum Baja-style temple in front of Gopi Nath Temple, is the first temple that is visible to the right of the gate. Shiva is worshipped in this open shrine, which has four pillars.

Badrinath temple

West of the Gopi Nath Temple lies a small shrine known locally as Badri Narayan, which is devoted to Vishnu and Naraya

Kedarnath temple

The Kedarnath (Shiva) Temple is a Shikara-style temple made of terracotta.

Gopi Nath temple/ Jagannath

The Gopi Nath Temple, which is connected to the Rameshwar Temple and contains the three gods Balaram, Subhadra, and Krishna, is built in the style of a two-roofed pagoda. The door is still mostly closed, making it challenging to see the deities. The temple is also known as Jagannath, another incarnation of Vishnu.

Erotic Temple

A hiti is located on the left directly before the square’s entrance (water fountain). A little Shiva-Parvati Temple with a double roof and sensual sculptures on its struts lies just 100 meters before the entrance, a few steps away but on the opposite side of the road. In the missionary pose, one of these depicts a pair of copulating elephants:

 

Durbar Square

Durbar Square in Bhaktapur is one of the crowded areas. There are numerous temples, statues, shrines, and monuments all around the square. The square is surrounded by the royal palace. 55-windows palace, The National art gallery museum, Vatsala temple, Pashupatinath temple, Taleju temple, and other monuments are located in Durbar Square.

Pottery Square

Potters Square is actually what you would expect it to be—a large open space filled with treadle-power potters haggling mud pots drying in the sun. You can see the clay work done by the local people which you can buy also. It’s a fascinating place to wander about because it serves as the center of Bhaktapur’s artistic community.

Taumadi Square

Nayatapola Temple, a “five-story temple,” is a famous place in Taumadi Square. This square is bordered to the north and east by the magnificent Nayatapola Temple, one of Nepal’s tallest temples, and the Bhairabnath Temple. Dedicated to Siddhi Lakshmi, this five-story temple is constructed of wood and brick. Dedicated to her, this brick and wood five-story Siddhi Lakshmi temple was built. Because of its durable construction, this temple survived two earthquakes without experiencing any damage

Dattatreya Square

At the center of Dattatraya Square lies a Hindu temple dedicated to the trinity that goes back to the fifteenth century. The setting is very pleasant, with small temples and Pujarimath, which is recognized as a museum of wood carving. The temple is located at the east end of the square near the eye-catching arts and crafts. The oldest temple in Bhaktapur Durbar Square is thought to have been constructed in 1428 AD. The temple, which is prominently situated in Bhaktapur’s Dattatreya Square, is thought to have been built during the reign of King Yaksha Malla using only a single stem of wood. However, in the year 1458 AD, the temple underwent a few renovations and modifications. The temple is devoted to the mysterious hybrid deity Dattatreya, which combines parts of Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu.

Monuments in Patan Durbar Square

Patan Durbar Square

The antiquated Royal Palace of Patan offers a stunning view of medieval Nepal. Even with the current renovation and framework, this concentrated group of sanctuaries represents the Newari architecture in Nepal in a manner that is maybe the most visually stunning. During the Malla era, particularly under the reign of King Siddhinarsingh Malla, the square’s construction accelerated dramatically. The most effective displays at the royal palace’s main stand include wood, metal, and iron.

 

Krishna Mandir

Krishna Mandir is located inside Patan Durbar Square. Non-Hindus are also not allowed inside the shrine. King Siddhinarsingh Malla constructed the sanctuary in the 17th century. The sanctuary was built using cut stone rather than the more common brick and timber; this amazing structural innovation reveals the departure from Indian sanctuary design. One of the valley’s most recognizable sites, the temple is commonly depicted on the intricate metal spread lights that Nepalis hang from their ceilings.

 

Patan Museum

An expertly carried-out restoration job is strongly evident by the Patan Museum. It is a piece of the historic palace constructed by the Malla dynasty and has a stunning, gilded door that faces the lovely Krishna Temple in the Durbar Plaza. It features exceptional metal sculptures, particularly statuettes that have undergone laborious restoration as part of a cooperative project between the governments of Austria and Nepal. Several priceless items from the Malla era, including the Malla throne, are included in the exhibits, which span a broad spectrum of Nepali cultural history. The best examples of Nepali metalwork over the ages are cast bronzes. This kind of metalwork is still done today in Patan. The art of metal craft has been passed down from generation to generation, and Patan is still renowned for its statue-making.

 

Golden Temple

A five-minute walk will bring you to Golden Temple (Hiranya Varna Mahavihar) in Patan.  Many people in Kathmandu and the immediate area, though, don’t give it any thought. Though it is known as the Golden Temple, the majority of its front is covered in layered metal plates, indicating that it is actually a Buddhist community. They move forward once they have some knowledge of the Golden Temple. A lot of detail can be seen in the carvings. The three-rooftop religious community was constructed in the 12th century by King Bhaskar Verma and is adorned with a stunning facade, four enormous doors, a clock tower, and two replicas of lions.
