Keshav Narayan Chowk
Royal Palace Complex
From 10:30 am to 4:30 pm, except Tuesdays and holidays.
Patan museum is housed in the residential palace compound of the Keshav Narayan Chowk inside the Royal Palace complex at Patan Durbar Square. The earliest exhibits date back to the eleventh century or even earlier - the Lichhavi period. Some 200 objects out of the more than 1,500 in the national sacred art collection have been carefully selected for permanent display here. They are mostly cast bronzes and gilt copper repousse work that cover both the Hindu and Buddhist iconology and represent a long span of the Kingdom's cultural history.
