After breakfast; drive to Bhadgaon (Bhaktapur), the home of medieval art and architecture. The city was probably founded by King Ananda Malla in 889 A.D. and is shaped like a conch shell. Bhaktapur, the city of devotees, lies nine miles east of Kathmandu and its traditional crafts are pottery and weaving. The SIDDHA POKHARI here is a historic reservoir near the city gate and it was built during the reign of King Yakshya Malla. Durbar Square here contains innumerable temples and other architectural show pieces: The Lion Gate adorned with the splendid stone figures of Hanuman, Bhairab & Narsingha Narayan; The Golden Gate built by Raja Ranjit Malla, which is the entrance to the main courtyard of the Palace of Fifty-Five Windows. The door is surmounted by a figure of Goddess Kali and Garuda, the winged carrier of Lord Vishnu, and attended by two sky nymphs; The Palace Of Fifty Five Windows was erected during the reign of King Yaksha Malla in 1427 A.D. and was remodeled by King Bhupatindra Malla in the 17th century, among the bricks of the walls, with their gracious setting and sculptural design is a balcony of 55 windows- a master piece of wood carving. Also visit Patan, indeed a city of beauty and grace. Planned on a circular format with Buddhist stupas (reliquary mounds) on the four points of the compass, the city is three miles south-east of Kathmandu city across the southern bank of the river Bagmati. Its most photogenic centre of attraction is the Durbar Square or the palace complex, which is situated right in the middle of the market place. It is a cluster of fine pagoda temples and stone statuaries. The stone temple of Lord Krishna holds a commanding position in the palace complex of Patan. Though its style is not wholly native, it has been reckoned as one of the perfect specimens of the Nepalese skill in temple craft. The three storied stone temples continue to elicit high praise from lovers of art and beauty.On the way back to Kathmandu stops at Boudnath Stupa. This colossal and ancient Stupa is one of the biggest in the world. Four pairs of eyes of Buddha in four cardinal directions are keeping an eternal watch over the people and their doings.
