Outdoor sights in Patan
- Sort by:
South of Mul Chowk is the smaller Sundari Chowk , with its superbly carved sunken water tank known as the Tusha Hiti. Unfortunately the courtyard is currently closed. Behind Sundari Chowk, and also not open to the public, is the Royal Garden and Kamal Pokhari water tank. The area is slated for renovation as a park by Unesco.
Back in main Durbar Sq the blocked-off entrance to Sundari Chowk is guarded by stone statues of Hanuman, Ganesh and Vishnu as Narsingha, the man-lion. The gilded metal window over the entrance from the square is flanked by windows of carved ivory.
