Most of the cultural centers of Nepal concentrate around the Kathmandu valley; among those cultural sites, the important one is the Kathmandu Durbar Square. The name Hanuman Dhoka Durbar came from the statue of Hanuman established by King Pratap Malla at the doorway of the royal palace in 1672. The durbar lies in the guts of an ancient city in Kathmandu, surrounded by Hindu and Buddhist temples. Most of them are inbuilt in the pagoda style embellished with intricately carved exteriors also as Most of the buildings we see here go back 15th to 18th centuries. The Durbar Square, with its old temples, and palaces, epitomizes the religious and cultural life of the people.
