Full description
Patan and Bhaktapur were separate kingdoms in early times and are filled with age-old palaces, temples, shrines, monasteries, and courtyards. These two medieval cities boast otherworldly views and extensive historical centers, and are both listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  Patan Durbar Square, the main attraction, comes equipped with a museum, palaces, Hindu temples, and ancient courtyards, whereas Bhaktapur, about 12 km from Kathmandu city, has retained its medieval spirit.   Within the centuries-old atmosphere of Bhaktapur Durbar Square, find Nyathapole Temple, Golden Gate, 55 Window Palace, and a fascinating museum.
