The temple is atop a large hill that requires a few breathers to complete, otherwise you can take your taxi around to the left of the stairs and up the side of the hill and remove the stair climb. I however advise the climb as the views as you ascend are the best of Kathmandu.
It's a great spot to see some monkeys and a nice temple. A must see for Rs200!!!
