Durbar Sq. has all the history in one place. Unfortunately a lot of temples are damaged or completely destroyed by the 2015 earthquake. Make sure you have a guide with you to explain all the various temples It is a MUST SEE!

Beautifully historical site. Still a great cultural attraction despite some being destroyed by the earthquake. So many temples. Seeing the coexisting between the Buddhist and Hindu religion is an experience by it self. A must see for any visit to Nepal.

Quiero viajar a Nepal, pero, no sé qué es lo que ha quedado del Nepal monumental. ¿Qué lugares, tras el terremoto, merece la pena visitar? ¿Podrías incluir alguna foto de las plazas Durbar en la actualidad? Gracias y un saludo.
