Gate sights in Patan
- Sort by:
The northern courtyard of the Royal Palace and museum - the Keshav Naryan Chowk -is entered from the square by the Golden Gate . Completed in 1734, this is the newest part of the palace. The courtyard is entered through a magnificent gilded door topped by a golden torana (portico above the door) showing Shiva, Parvati, Ganesh and Kumar. Directly above the golden door is a golden window, at which the king would make public appearances.
The bench to the side of the gate is a favourite of Patan's retirees.
