A remnant of the grandeur once held by the kings of the Malla era, Patan Museum is one of the highlights of Newari culture. The museum is located in Durbar Square, or Palace Square, in Patan, once home to royalty who held sway over Kathmandu valley. The “chowk”, or courtyard, is the centerpiece of this remarkable restoration project, undertaken in 1982 with the help of the Austrian government. Surrounded by centuries old brick and wood, molded into a lasting tribute to Newari art and architecture, it truly is a step into the glorious history of this city.
At the Patan Museum Café, a set “a la carte” menu is in place, with a large seating capacity. This points to a perfect setting for pre-booked groups, live musical performances, and various exhibitions and galas, further testament to the appeal of Patan Museum.
