Patan Durbar Square that is situated in the very heart of the Patan city catches the fancy of tourists. The subtle design of this monument immediately attracts the attention of visitors. The square is scattered with number of ancient palaces, temples and shrines that are noted for their exquisiteness. The Patan Durbar Square consists of three main Chowk. These Chowk have been built in different eras. The three Chowk namely the Central Mul Chowk, Sundari Chowk and Keshav Narayan Chowk constitute the three entrances to the Durbar. The Sundari Chowk holds in its center a masterpiece of stone architecture; the royal bath called "Tushahity".
Built in the 17th century, the temple of Lord Krishna is a masterpiece of fusion architecture. This subtle mix of Indian and Nepalese architecture holds a commanding position in the palace complex of Patan. The monument looks distinct because of its unique design. It is supposed to be the first specimen of Shikhara style architecture in Nepal. It is the only temple in Nepal having 21 spires and is completely made of stone.
Located around 10-km southeast of Patan Phulchowki is a quite sneak out destination. Situated at a height of 2,758 meters, the place is a good spot for hiking. A Buddhist shrine is situated on the top of the hill, which can be reached through a motor-able road. Nevertheless the best way to go there is through hiking.
