Patan

Patan is a one of the largest cities in Nepal and is located just across the Bagmati river from Kathmandu. Confusingly, it is also known as Lalitpur. Patan is a city of 55 major temples, 136 Buddhist monasteries, fine metal works, and countless festivals. Patan takes pride in producing great Thanka painters in the country. In every – now and then – corners and alleys of Patan can be seen with Thanka painters, filling color to ancient Gods and Goddess.
