Yita Chapal

TIME : 2016/2/17 15:42:11

On the south side of Asan Tole is the Yita Chapal (Southern Pavilion), which was once used for festival dances (the dance platform out front is just visible underneath several stalls). Cat Stevens wrote his hippie-era song Kathmandu in a smoky teahouse in Asan Tole, penning the lines: ‘Kathmandu I’ll soon be seeing you, and your strong bewildering time will hold me down.’
