Patan Day Tour


Trip Overview

Patan day tour is special because of its historical importance and wide excursion perimeter. The major attraction of the Patan day tour would be the ancient royal palace, where the Malla Kings of Lalitpur once ruled.

There are more mysterious words and untold stories related to Patan Durbar Square. It is somehow more popular for its fine art and less spoiled “Newar traditional architecture”. But it also is the best place to explore ancient culture. With that, Patan is quite popular for its vihars. Vihars are the places where Buddhist practitioners practice Buddhism.
