Patan Durbar Square
I write this review to remember how wonderful Patan Durbar square was. Last month only i have visited this place and now this amazing place was destroyed by earthquake. One of the most amazing heritage site in Nepal was destroyed by earthquake. buildings are amazing, heritage Hindu kingdom. There are a number of historic temples including some extraordinary erotic carvings on one of the temples in a traditional South Asian style. The square also houses the Patan Museum, which is simply amazing. It is easy to walk from here to the nearby Mahabuddha temple. There are fairly regular religious processions and performances in the square as well.
As we crossed Koteshwor, Sunil realized that the 'Bill Book' was on another Jacket and we had to return to get it. In no time, he turned the bike towards the room, reached there, took the missed small book and we were immediately back on track. Prachesh was waiting in Anamnagar. It didn't take much time for us to reach there as early morning traffic of the capital was low. We continued the ride till Goma Ganesh Petrol Pump passing Gairidhara, fueled our bikes as well as had light breakfast in nearby cafe. From there we continued the ride through Maharajgunj, Dhapasi then followed the Tokha road passing Tokha bazaar. Rough and bumpy road inside the city was making the ride torturous. The condition of roads after leaving Tokha bazaar was even worse. Our ride passed through the dusty countryside road and if any bigger vehicle overtook, we won't get any option rather than wait on the roadside for the dust to settle. I can't even imagine what will happen if it rains.
