Kirtipur

Then we’ll head on to Kirtipur. A medieval settlement of Kirtipur is located along a narrow ridge 4 kilometres to the southwest of the Kathmandu Valley. The medieval Newari town is settled in a fort-like position. Kirtipur was once a strong domain, the “key” to the whole Kathmandu valley. The army of Prithivi Narayan Shah, the origin of the Shah dynasty, first conquered it on the way to conquering the Kathmandu Valley, which proved to be pivotal in the unification of modern Nepal. Kirtipur is also a testimony to the medieval art and architecture of the Newari people. The ancient monuments in the town include Chilancho Vihar, Jagat Pal Vihar, Buddha Dharma Sangha Shikhara, Baghbhairab Temple, Vath (Layaku), Umamaheshvar Temple, Indrayani Pith, Chitu Bahal, Lokeshwar Shikhara, Buddha Temple, Chve Bahal and Kwe Bahal. The core area of the medieval settlement of Kirtipur still retains a large degree of its authentic character.
