Featured City - Lalitpur
 Lalitpur, the second biggest city in the valley is richer than Kathmandu in art and architectureJust across the holy Bagmati river stands another ancient city called Lalitpur. A twenty-minute cab ride from Kathmandu city, Lalitpur is a charming city which has still retained its tranquil ambience. Walking down the quiet, narrow streets of the city, you would come across traditional building, exquisite temples and tiny shops of artists, metalworkers, wood workers and stonecutters. The city is indeed renowned for its fine craftmanship.

Lalitpur, which means city of beauty (Lalit = Beauty, Pur = City in Nepali language) is also known as Patan to the locals. Lalitpur has a long Buddhist history and has stupas at its four corners. Like Kathmandu Durbar (Palace) Square, Lalitpur Durbar Square is also packed with temples. Most of these temples were built during the glorious period of the Malla kings in which art and architecture in the valley developed to its maximum .

As in Kathmandu, Lalitpur also has an old royal palace built during the Malla kings period. Most of the temples here are built in Newari architecture. The rectangular Durbar Square has an axis from north, south, east and west to the Royal Palace. Malla kings who used to rule over Lalitpur in the ancient times used to love art and architecture. To fulfill their wishes, many buildings having excellent arts such as wood carving, stone carving etc. were made. These buildings, which were created by skilled Nepali architects have stood firmly for centuries defying all the barriers of nature.
