Unfortunately this famous attraction is totally damaged by the earthquake 2015 and the government has not started yet the reconstruction. You can visit it as you are close to the Durbar square.

The earthquake of last year ruined its beauty. Its no more now in the existence, it turned into ashes. Once upon a time you could see the whole Kathmandu from its top.
