BHAKTAPUR DURBAR SQUARE (UNESCO World Heritage Site)
The Bhaktapur quite far from Kathmandu and it is the biggest durbar squire in Kathmandu among all the durbar squires, The 15th century Palace of 55 Carved Windows and the palace entrance, the Golden Gate - a masterpiece in art - have added splendor to this palace square which consists of buildings dating from the 13th century to the 18th century.
The Bhaktapur extraordinary Durbar Square with its extraordinary monuments reflects the glory days of the Malla dynasty of Nepal when art and architecture thrived in the three cities of the valley. In front of the palace building are innumerable temples and architectural showpieces like the Lion Gate, the statue of King Bhupatindra Malla mounted on a giant stone pillar and the Batsala Devi Temple. The stone temple of Batsala Devi is full of intricate carvings and is a beautiful example of Shikhara-style architecture. There is a bronze bell on the terrace of the temple, which is also known as the Bell of Barking Dogs. Erected by King Ranjit Malla in 1737, its sounding announced the beginning and end of a daily curfew.
PATAN DURBAR SQUARE (UNESCO World Heritage Site)
Patan Durbar Square is located in the heart of the city and was once the palace of the kings of Patan. The square is an enchanting mélange of palace buildings, artistic courtyards and graceful pagoda temples – a display of Newari architecture that had reached its pinnacle during the reign of the Malla kings. Among its numerous courtyards, the renovated Keshav Narayan Chowk has been converted into a bronze artifact museum.
The Sundari Chowk with the sunken bath of Tusha Hiti is a showcase of exquisite woodcarvings, stone and metal sculptures of Nepal. The magnificent Krishna Temple with its 21 gilded spires, built in 1637, and the Manga Hiti, the sunken stone water spout, found in the palace complex are but a few examples of its opulence. The Krishna Temple, built entirely of stone, is said to be the first specimen of Shikhara-style architecture in Nepal.
