Patan Day Tour with Bungamati & Khokana

Three places are lies in same region. Patan city is very rich in Newari arts and sculpture with lots of masterpiece decorations carved in stones, metals and wood sculpture. This time is also called ‘Patan’ and, in Newari language, it is also known as ‘Yala’. With around 600 Stupas and 185 Bahals, Patan is the place to see a marvel the ancient temples, courtyards and monuments built during the Malla period, the golden art era. The Patan Durbar Square, which is enlisted in the UNESCO world heritage site, stands proof of the great arts and craftsmanship achieved during the Malla civilization. During the Malla civilization, the art flourished greatly with different cultural monuments erected by different Malla kings in the 16th, 17th, and 18th century. The four Stupas constructed on the four corners of the city by the great Buddhist emperor Ashoka during his pilgrimage to Nepal in 250 BC add to the historical appeal of this city of art.

Bungamati, a classical medieval village which lies across the Bagamati River from Chobar, dominated by huge Shikhara, Rato Machhindranath temple of its major attraction, exploring the pedestrian-only street is great way to pass few hours and tourist have yet to arrive en masse, so we have to walk gently though the town. Many locals work as woodcarvers and there are numerous craft workshops and showrooms around village. It is believed that Bungmati is birthplace of Rato Macchindranth, the patron of Patan who live in Rato Machhindranath temple for six months of a year and rest of time the deity resides in Rato Machhindranath temple in Patan. Other sights to visit around village are Bungamati Culture Museum, Dey Pukha (central pond) and Karya Binak Temple on the way to Khokana Village. The temple is dedicated to Hindu god Ganesha. 

And yet there is another charming Newari town is Khokana, worth to visit. The village was badly damaged by 1934 earthquake. Triple-tiered temple in the heart of town is Shree Rudrayani Devi or Shekala Mai Temple. The locals here are mainly farmers and you will notice people weaving hay mats, stuffing cases with cotton, farmers baling straw, tailors stitching and women spinning wools and winnowing rice during your day trip to Bungmati and Khokana.
