We parked far away and walked through an interesting neighborhood to get to the square. That was the best part, for me. I was hot, thirsty, little shade to be found, and we were waiting in the courtyard of the Living Goddess for her to make an appearance. She finally did, and looked a little bored and put upon as she gazed down upon us from the window above. She didn't spend much more than a minute at the window. We visited one of the temples and made our way back to the van. I enjoyed Patan's Durbur Square much more. Different atmosphere.

great history and architecture.

What I dont like? The fact, that Tripadvisor is pushing to fill up more information, then I really want to. Next time I´ll just skip it. Think about that guys... :)

Dirty and overpriced. Full of pigeons. And people. NIce to just walk there as it is one of the "best" parts of Kathmandy, with long history and some attractions.

Just sit down at the Pagoda steps and observe how life is passing by ... enjoy and keep that moment in your mind ....

Having visited all three of the 'Durbar Sqaures' it is hard to suggest why you would need to see all of them, unless a complete travel experience is your objective. The Kathnamdu, or more correctly Thamel Durbar Square has impressive architecture, and a great museum with an interesting story. Here you can see many artifacts from King Tribhuwan's reign, including many quite bizarre items such as his favourite bird, now suitably stuffed in its original cage. Well managed and plenty of staff to ask questions if you wish. The wired roof in the main courtyard used to prevent the copious pidgeon population is interesting, but with limited success to be honest. In summary, one Durbar Square is fine, just choose which one suits your itinerary.
