Kathmandu Valley    Patan Sub-Metropolitan City   

Patan Sub-Metropolitan City

Alternative Names: Lalitpur Sub-Metropolitan City (LSMC), Lalitpur N.P., Patan (nep.), Yala (new.)


District Capital with about 190.000 inhabitants. Lalitpur is called "die schöne Stadt" (germ.). It is devided in 22 Wards.
My idea is that each Place (Area) in the City should be represented by at least one picture of a Temple, a Shrine, a Chaitya and Sculptures.


Founded about 6th ct.
