After Bhouda stupa, I got into a taxi and headed for Patan. In its early days, there were three kingdoms in the Kathmandu valley, the Kingdom of Kathmandu, of Patan and Bhaktapur, each has its own palace and temple complex. This forms the Durbar square. So there is a Durbar square each in Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. The Durbar square in Patan is very intricate and very well preserved. More of it later.
