"City of Beauty"
Filled with culture, artisans and a distinct Buddhist atmosphere, Patan, or, Lalitpur is a sophisticated and almost peaceful city of temples, stupas, statues and shrines:
Yesterday (Sunday), Nikolaj, Ugo and I set off on an adventure to Patan; a city just south of Kathmandu metropolitan. Much more peaceful than Kathmandu, Patan boasts magnificent art artifacts and other cultural relics. Patan's Durbar Square displays Nepal's Buddhist and Hindu heritage extremely well with a colourful (as always in Nepal) backdrop. Worth a visit. Many picturesque bistros and cafes line the outskirts of the grand plaza that are sure to attract one's attention after a long day of exploration.
