This temple was a definitely highlight with beautiful temple architecture with many ornate features, carvings, shrines, statues, animals, images of Buddha meditating, prayer wheels, and such.

A visit to this place really worth. Full of ancient architecture and statues makes you feel like you are in different era. Very carefully crafted statues looks like they are living. I really enjoyed visiting this place and Patan town itself.

This is one of my favourite temples in Nepal. There is so much to see in such a small space and I could easily spend hours watching the people and the birds going about their daily rituals. A visit in the very early morning is particularly lovely. Be prepared to take too many photographs!

Lovely small temple with many golden statues and a shrine. It costs just 50 R and is nice to visit, if you are near this area.
