Those aren't stupas. Stupas are Buddhist monuments meant for storing the relics of the Buddha and other Buddhist figures. These are mostly temples and palaces.

Most of the buildings in Durbar Square, Patan date between the 15th and 17th centuries (Malla kingdom). Its a World Heritage Site.

Here's another picture of Durbar Square, Patan
