This stunning temple is Nepal’s finest example of Shikhara style architecture, not quite as popular as the Pagoda style but taller and more ornate.

The Krishna Temple is currently fenced off and has scaffolding around it. There is restoration work in progress after the earthquake last year. It is a pity that the fencing does not allow anyone to visit the temple from the inside, because it looks imposing on the outside.

The entire structure is being restored and has scaffolding around it. Known as Bishwanath or Visvesvara, it has 2 plinth levels and 2 roofs. The two elephants with riders can be seen. It is closed to visitors and one can only imagine its original glory.

Krishna Mandir (Temple) is one the famous temple here in Patan and recommended to visit it once. It is full of art and culture. As being a Nepali I would definitely recommend this because of its beauty and art. It is in renovation process now due to the earthquake.

Still in scaffoldings following th earthquake, but devotees come to pray and chant all the same, it made me feel full of respect... and sadness, let's hope the renovation keeps going.... For birdlovers: saw 2 owls coming out of it, probably also House Swifts! So hopefully the renovation will keep room for them...

This temple of incredibly beauty and craftsmanship is another magnificent example of how Patan must been like in their 17th century heyday. Near the square it is absolutely great even after some damage by the earthquake

This temple is inside the Patan Durbar square. Very impressive with its stone structure, and 21 golden pinnacles. The temple walls have engravings of Ramayana and Mahabharata. Cannot miss this ancient structure.
