Special door for a special temple.. This temple is unique with giant bell near it. you can climb and go near to the bell. Not sure if you can ring the bell though.. but again this is different and probably one of the most beautiful temple in Bhaktapur Durbar square.

Guarded by armed personel.... no camera is allowed inside and even cannot take pictures from outside... no belongings, baggage, shoes are allowed inside.... looks like they have hidden all their secrets inside.

The architecture of the temple is very beautiful. Leather items are not allowed inside and one must leave all this along with cameras, mobile phones etc outside.

As we are both Hindus we entered the temple with the armed guards permission. From what I saw of the inside of the temple, the outside really is not comparable! However,... More
