The third valley’s of former royal cities is another of Kathmadnu’s rivals. It is situated about 16 km from the capital. Like Patan and Kathmadnu it contains and impressive number of artistic treasures. At the same time

Bhadgaon deserves to be called the most mediaeval city of the valley.  Here stands proudly the palace of the 55 windows. The ancient royal palace, a magnificent example of eighteenth century’s architecture, it was built by King Bhupatindra Malla whose kneeling statue stands just in front of the golden gate another masterpiece of Nepalese handicraft. Both palace and gate were completed by Newar artisans in 1753 to 54.

Worth being noted the collection of old Nepalese wood and stone carvings as well as of many beautiful mainly Newari Thang-kas. All these treasures are on display in the Museum installed in the left hand part of the Royal Palace, when facing it.

The gigantic bell close to the Vatsala Temple, which was erected under king Ranjit Malla’s regn, in 1737. Nepalese bell founders were reputed in old times for many centuries: even the Kings of Tibet used to order bells in Nepal. This particular one on Bhadgaon’s Durbar Square is called the dog barking bell for its sound is supposed to chase away the God of Death and his messengers, thus ensuring the Sovereign a long life, if not immortality!

The potter’s place, the Nyatapola, the Bhairabnath temple, the Dattatreya Square and many more other temples are the magnificent structures to see and take picture. It is also called city of devotees. For the commercial pictures one needs to take permission from the authority.

KATHMANDU DURBAR SQUARE
(half day tour by car or by bus depend on group size,
trip starting point at Thamel, in front of Exotic Mt. Treks Pvt. Ltd. There is no doubt that one of the main attractions of old Kathmandu consists precisely in strolling on foot and atrandom through the maze of narrow streets. Here we have Lanes and courtyards, to let one-self be taken in by the mediaeval, leisurely atmosphere of the bazaar (all kind of goods). It is while sauntering through the heart of this amazing city with its many small shops where all kinds of goods often strange and unfamiliar ones. Are sold that the tourist will discover houses decorated with masterpieces of wood carved windows. And balconies as well as sanctuaries, temples and sacred ponds of all shape age and size. Here it is really fascinating to mix with the crowd that are selling, buying, bargaining, while others carry loads. All do their best not to be hit by cyclists and rickshaws.

As for the local people, they are completely indifferent towards the tourist, whether he is just looking around or shooting with his camera. Had the Nepalese one in their hand, they are likely to take as many pictures of the odd behaving tourists!

Way to entry Kathmandu Durbar Square are: Asan / Indra Chock or New Road or Basantapur (the hippie street). The palace of the living goddess, the statues of Garuda, Kasthmandap ( destroyed by earth quake of 2015, April 25), the old royal palace, the Neo Greek corner, the three main temples, the strange windows, Hanumandhoka Square, the Seto Bhairab, Kalo Bhairab, the Hanuman statue, golden gate and coronation courtyard are the most impressive and remarkable with its legends, arts and crafts. Must visit.
