The Hanuman Shrine is still working and many of the buildings are still present - some propped up - this is still a beautiful historic precinct. It is all well managed and well worth visiting.

Kathmandu had 4 kings who ruled that area and Dubar Square is a good examples of life under one of these kings.

The ride itself was an adventure (4 cabs; none of the seatbelts worked in the backseat) as the drivers maneuvered with other cars, motorcycles, bikes, and pedestrians - so many really close calls...
