As per the local tradition, the Taleju Bhavani deity was brought to Nepal from South India. Taleju was patronised by the Malla kings. All the three Durbars complexes - Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan have a Taleju Temple each. The Taleju temple at Bhaktapur is inside the erstwhile Royal Palace. We entered the Golden Gate and the temple entrance was to... More

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.

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. There are limited locker facilities, so its better that one person of the group stays outside with everything while the rat go in. The temple is used for prayer twice a day and... More

As the royal temple of Bhaktapur the Taleju temple really does not disappoint. I went with my Nepali partner and saw the sign that said only HIndus are allowed. 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

Taleju Temple is the royal palace which dominates one side of Bhaktapur's Durbar Square. The golden entrance or Sun Dhoka is considered one of the artistic treasures of Nepal. Spend some time studying the detail of the Garuda directly over the top and the ten armed deity under it. Don't be put off by an armed soldier who lurks in... More
