I loved to be back in Tansen

I visited Tansen several times while I was traveling in Nepal. it felt I was back again during this virtual tour. Abhishek has a lot of knowledge about the history of town and the culture. So you can ask him any kind of question.. I learned some new things about Tansen! I had a great trip!
