NEPAL, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal is a mystical country nestled in the folds of the magnificent Himalaya Mountain Ranges. The people of Nepal can always be seen to be smiling. Nepal is a deeply religious country, as you will see in their temples, monasteries and buildings. The fertile, mountain sheltered Kathmandu Valley is the historic heart of Nepal, where the Himalaya's most sophisticated kingdoms rose and fell and where Nepali art and culture were developed and refined. In many ways the Kathmandu Valley is Nepal.

The city of Patan is believed to have been built in the third century B.C. by the Kirat Dynasty. It was expanded by Lichhavis in the 6th century A.D. and again by the Mallas in medieval period. Durbar Square, like its counterpart in Kathmandu, is an enchanting mélange of palace buildings, artistic courtyards and graceful pagoda temples.
