Description:
The Kathmandu Durbar Square holds the palaces of the Malla and Shah Kings who ruled over the city. Along with these palaces, the square also surrounds quadrangles revealing courtyards and temples. The square is presently known as Hanuman Dhoka, a name derived from the statue of Hanuman, the monkey devotee of Lord Ram, near the entrance of the palace.

Kathmandu Durbar square is also in Cultural World Heritage site of UNESCO. It is famous for the social, religious and urban focal point amongst Kathmanduiets.

I took this shot casually while resting with friends at the top of a café at Basantapur Dabali in the evening.

    Superb composition!
    I liked the way the shadows and the lights are talking about the time of the day. Never noticed the mountain behind looks that close.
