Overview

Patan, the 3rd largest city of Nepali after Kathmandu and Pokhara is located on the south central of Kathmandu Valley. Patan, meaning “a pasture land” in Sanskrit is also know by the name of Yala (named after 1st Kirati King Yalambar) and Lalitpur (City of Fine Arts).

Lalitpur is believed to have been founded in the 3rd Century BC by the Kirat Dyansty and later expanded by Lichhavis in 6th Century. During Medieval Period it was further extended by the Mallas and later in 18th century, King Prithivi Narayan Shah of Gorkha kingdom attacked Lalitpur and annexed to present greater Nepal.

Newar Community of People is the main inhabitant of Patan City. Though temples of Hindu god and goddesses can be seen with in the periphery of Patan Durbar Square, in all Patan can be said as a Buddhist City. Small Chaityas and Stupas can be observed in each and every corner of Patan City. Furthermore, the Stupas on the four corner of Patan city which is said to be built by the Emperor Ashoka from India during 3 century BC also proves that Patan is a Buddhist City.
