Patan, Nepal

Patan is the third largest city after Kathmandu and Pokhara. It is located in the Kathmandu Valley and was once one of the 3 old royal kingdoms in Nepal (Kathmandu and Bhaktapur comprise of the other 2 kingdoms).

The city is filled with temple, rich culture, and handicrafts. The crafts include wood and stone carvings, metal statues, and ornate and intricate architecture. The architecture is all around the temples and buildings highly inspired by Buddhism and Hinduism.
