The Royal Palace in Patan covers up the Durbar Square in the city and is one of the most famous attractions there. Built in the 14th century under the rule of the Malla King, the palace was restored after the Kathmandu earthquake in 2015. The palace includes a number of temples in its complex and it is almost impossible to take a trip to Durbar Square without having a look at the Royal Palace.
The palace has a series of connecting courtyards behind the windows, overhanging eaves and delicate wooden screens. The northern gateway has been engraved with golden Toranas showing Parvati, Shiva, Ganesha and Kumar. Above the gateway, there is a window that is gilded foil wrapped around a timber frame where the king used to make his public appearances. This place also leads to the Patan Museum.
