Beautiful place with so much history. Still a lot of construction trying to fix buildings from the earth quake, but you felt like you where in a place where so much history began.

it has always been one of my favorite places, full of history and charm, ancient temples, unfortunately the earthquake left an indelible mark, I went back after 5 years but the square is no longer the same, the temples are being rebuilt very slowly, but for me the magic that that place offered disappeared

House of living goddess Kumari, ruins after the earthquake, university of Sanskrit (the oldest language on the planet), traditional market (where you shouldn’t forget to bargain) and the rooftop restaurant above the square. Was very happy to find wonderful handmade singing bowl. If you meditate or just like to sit in peace and quiet, would suggest you to get one too.

all the ruins of what used to be a royal court are there. the earthquake destroyed this place and it is sad to say that it has not been reconstructed. more than a square, it has become a local vegetable market now.

Stupa is brilliant & strikingly beautiful too. A sense of calm while walking around clockwise. View is amazing surroundings by hills. Buddhists music gives this place special atmosphere and energetic. One of the best places in Kathmandu.

Being in Kathmandu and not visiting Durbar Square is a mistake. This place is like going through centuries and seeing how the Nepalese lived, their architecture, their customs, one of the best excursions in Kathmandu.
