Beautifully historical site. Still a great cultural attraction despite some being destroyed by the earthquake. So many temples. Seeing the coexisting between the Buddhist and Hindu religion is an experience by it self. A must see for any visit to Nepal.

We spent a couple of hours in the afternoon exploring Durbar Square. There's currently a lot of post-earthquake construction going on, but an interesting place to see anyway. The highlight of our visit to Durbar Square turned out to be the momos we ate at...More

There is not much to see here anymore. The earthquake had turned this square to ruin. Yes there is this one big nice temple still intact.

The World's largest Stupa and heritage listed Buddhist temple makes this a very special place to visit. Surrounded by locals selling their wares and restaurants to dine at made this my favourite place to visit in Kathmandu. :)

It's a busy place, fairly underwhelming. The earthquake damage shows. Not a sightseeing highlight, but an interesting history here. A steep entrance fee, but hopefully this goes back into the maintenance and rebuild of the square.

This is such an interesting place but it is in such bad shape. I understand the earthquake left its huge marks, but still, there is so much trash, so much to be done. It seems totally neglected, which is a shame. Hope the next government...More

This place is on the list of "must-see" attractions in Kathmandu and there are still lots of impressive structures to see. However, you will need to go with lower expectations since damage from the 2015 earthquakes is still painfully evident. Be prepared to see scaffolding...More

Quiero viajar a Nepal, pero, no sé qué es lo que ha quedado del Nepal monumental. ¿Qué lugares, tras el terremoto, merece la pena visitar? ¿Podrías incluir alguna foto de las plazas Durbar en la actualidad? Gracias y un saludo.

J'ai eu l'occasion de visiter kathmandou en 1973. C'était bien différent que de nos jours, tout était libre...C'était l'époque hippies . Pour la petite histoire, j'avais un visa de 15 jours . J'y suis resté 6 mois !
