Not only centuries-old temples or monuments but also farm produce vendors, florists, traffic snarl and even wandering bulls and goats play leading roles in a uniquely Himalayan setting of Durbar Square.
It earliest traces back to the first king of Kathmandu City in 11th century, Durbar Square used to be a courtyard of a royal palace wherein numerous religious constructions devoted to Hindus God sand Goddesses were phased in during subsequent hundred years. Ever since, the gilded time of wooded houses has never stopped shining and attracting worldwide tourists’ curiosity.
Spend a full day in the square and its vicinity to taste the real Nepalese life pulse. At first light, the square plays a fresh food market before being packed with traffic and local youth. At noon, Durbar Square definitely belongs to cameras of foreign visitors while the streets nearby becomes a shopping paradise of inexpensive souvenirs. By night, Durbar Square either is a hub of festival activities or stays hushed and silently slumbers away.
