Once you pass through the Golden Gate you'll find the Taleju temple in a courtyard to your left. There will be guards outside the main doorway. It is prohibited for any non-hindu to enter the Taleju temple or for anyone to take photographs inside. The guards are so protective of it you probably won't even be able to take a... More

The temple allowing the entry only to the Hindus helps to increase the curiosity level of the non-Hindu tourists. The premises of temple with artistic water spout inside the golden gate was worth watching.

There are 2 other famous Taleju Temples build by King Malla , located in Kathmandu and Patan. Only Hindus could enter the... More

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
