Sundari Chowk

TIME : 2-17 15:37:58

Pride of place in this intimate black and white courtyard is the ritual bathing pool with its Lichhavi-era carving of Krishna subduing the coils of the Kaliya serpent, hewn from a single block of stone in the sixth century. The Malla kings would ritually bathe each morning at the golden waterspout, whose water llegedly flows from Budhanilkantha in the north of the valley.
