Patan Durbar square

Patan Durbar Square has been listed in UNESCO world heritage sites, which is one of the seven such sites in Kathmandu Valley Lalitpur since historic times. It’s known for its rich, social and cultural heritage and tradition. The city still displays this unique tradition and culture in its day-to-day life and activities. It won't be wrong to consider Lalitpur as a city of living culture rather than a heritage. Various religious and ethnic communities belonging to either Hinduism or Buddhism live side by side in close harmony.
