From Barahi Kathmandu you can reach the square of Tahity and from there walk through the old by lanes to reach Asan the biggest market at one time. See the Annapurna temple and take the diagonal road to Indra chowk via Seto Machendranath temple and Bheda Singh which is the only market for clay pottery in Kathmandu.
The Indrachowk is dominated by the Akash Bhairav temple and from there a bare 5 min walk will bring you to the Durbar Square with the massive Hanuman Dhoka Palace,the ancient seat of Royalty dominated by the Taleju temple, the tallest temple in Kathmandu, and The statue of Kal Bhairav. Not to be missed are The Residence of the Living Goddess and The Kashtamandap Pavillion said to have been built from the wood of a single tree. The structure was badly damaged during the 2015 earthquake and have been rebuilt. See the courtyard of Kote, the scene of a massacre for power struggle in 1842.
