We take you to the following places:

Rani Pokhari - built by King Pratap Malla in 1667 to console his queen over the death of their son. The pool (pokhari means pool or small lake) was apparently used during the Malla era for trials by ordeal and later became a popular suicide spot. Perhaps due to the high suicide rate, the gate to the pool and its central Shiva Temple is opened only one day each year, on the 5th day of the Tihar festival.

Old city - East of Thamel is a very old part of the city. Most of its residents are Newari. There are many old Buddhist stupas, Hindu temples and houses with handcrafted windows and roofs.

Local market - the Asan market is a popular shopping area for locals. Many different kind of goods can be found here.
