It provides you with a wonderful atmosphere in which to unwind throughout your entire excursion to important cultural landmarks and temples.

Compared to Kathmandu and Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square is indeed the slightest established historical royal palace in the Kathmandu Valley. The Newari city of Bhaktapur is located 16 KM east of Kathmandu. Bhaktpur Durbar reigned over the entire Kathmandu valley before the 15th century. A Malla monarch who had three sons in the fifteenth century created three kingdoms for their convenience. The fierce battle among the monarchs for dominance led to the construction of numerous temples in the valley's Durbar Squares. Since there was constant rivalry and fighting among the three kingdoms, they lost control in 1768, at which point Nepal's Shah Dynasty began as a new monarchy.
