Sundari Chowk, Patan Overview

In the Patan Durbar Square of Kathmandu Valley, Nepal is the beautiful courtyard of Sundari Chowk with an entrance guarded by the three impressive statues of Hindu deities Hanuman, Ganesh and Narsingha. It is one of the three main courtyards in Patan Durbar Square and is located south of its more famous neighbour, Mul Chowk. Relatively smaller than Mul Chowk, this area is arranged around a carved sunken water tank known as Tusha Hiti and has the Bhandarkhal water tank which was once the main supply tank royal palace.

Built in 1647, this Chowk had been under reconstruction as a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the north, south and west wings here were near completion when Nepal was struck by a massive earthquake in 2015. It was however the east wing which was severely destroyed, owing to its old architecture. After restoration work which lasted for almost 3 years, Sundari Chowk was reopened in 2018 and made available for exhibitions and to the public.
