One of the main sights in Kathmandu valley is the Kathmandu Durbar park (UNESCO World Heritage site), also named the Hanuman Dhoka square. The Kathmandu valley is located in the most part of Nepal’s cultural centers; the Hanuman-dhoka Durbar Square is one of the major cultural locations. Hanuman Dhoka was named after the Hanuman sculpture created by King Pratap Malla in 1672 A.D., which was located at the door to the Royal Palace. Built in 1770, the storied place was called Basantapur Durbar(palace) by the King Prithvi Narayan. The entire building is also regarded as Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Most of the buildings are built in pagoda style, decorated with the complex sculptured exterior, and many of them are from the XVI to the XVIII centuries. Durbar Square is an embodiment of the spiritual and cultural lives of individuals with its ancient shrines and palaces.
