Woolly says – With Zoe in much better form and having had some breakfast, we set off to have a look at Kathmandu Durbar Square, based in front of the old royal palace of the former Kathmandu Kingdom it is one of three Durbar (Royal palace) Squares in the city, all of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. I knew that it wouldn’t look the same as the pictures I had seen on google or in the guidebooks as several buildings in the Square had collapsed due to the major earthquake on 25th April 2015 and had yet to be rebuilt but it was still a must do place. Our planning however had a slight hitch in it…… it was Holi!
We had known about the festival but not the extent of it, naïve, of course we are!
Woolly says – Holi is festival of colour and marks the farewell of winter and welcoming of summer in Southern Asia.
