Immediately across from Bhimsen Temple is the sunken Manga Hiti, one of the water conduits with which Patan is liberally endowed. The tank contains a cruciform-shaped pool and three wonderfully carved dhara (water spouts) in the shape of makara (mythical crocodile-elephants). The two wooden ceremonial pavilions that used to overlook the tank – known as the Mani Mandap – collapsed completely in the 2015 earthquake.
