Krishna Mandir is located in patan or also Patan Durbar Square. This temple has a very historical and religious value. It is well maintained and preserved. The environment around is clean and people around are very friendly. A must place to visit while in Nepal.

The temple within the patan durbar square was badly damaged in the earthquake of 2015, it is under renovation and hence closed for the visitors. We can have a look from a distance only.

This 8-sided stone temple is located near the south entrance of Patan’s Durbar Square. It’s quite different from the wooden buildings in the rest of Patan’s Durbar Square.

This temple is open to generic public only 2 or 3 times a year and I went inside the temple after the earthquake. Strongly built by our ancestors. But you don't need to go inside the temple. Just admire the beauty from outside.
