This is a land Mark connected to the old palace at the Kathmandu Durbar Square. They don't let people inside and absolutely no foreigners as it was the shrine to the family Goddess of the ancient rules of Nepal. It adds a lot to the sky line and gives a mystical feeling when seen in the early morning or at dusk.

We were so lucky that we got chance to visit this temple on that day it was open.for your kind information this temple opens for all only one time in a year. There was no plan for us on that day visit this place. We were walking this place as we went there Durga puja time and we saw lots of queue . Then we checked and we heard this temple only opens that day time of vijaya dashami. We stood on queue behind 1000 people and within one hour we got chance to see the final temple. Volunteers are maintaining so nicely that huge crowd didn't create any problem. You need to climb some stairs .The security guards were very helpful as my 6 years boy was not able to see he goddess but hey helped him again to see. Really we were lucky.

This was first temple erected with more than two roofs and first to be raised on a tall stepped platform of Kathmandu Valley.The temple is dedicated to Goddess Taleju Bhawani. Taleju Temple is royal diety of Malla King. The temple was built by King Mahendra Malla in Year 1564. This is also Unesco World Heritage Site. We were not able to offer pray because it opens only once in a year.

One of the most beautiful and well maintained Hindu temples. It is nice to climb the stairs and enjoy the view! So many temples, so little time.

Another beautiful old temple to see on the tour in this old town World Heritage site. Stop and take pictures and imagine the lifestyles of these nobles/royals who worshiped here in their day!

An important temple, the Degu Taleju Temple, is far from being reconstructed after the 2015-earthquake. It is not clear when it will happen as several bodies are supposed to be fixing it with money coming from various sources including the Japanese Government.

This is another historic site in the Kathmandu Durbar square. There are many Durbar Squares in Nepal so make sure you find the correct location. There is a modest admission fee to visit the square and it’s primarily to pay for the restoration efforts. Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. There was significant earthquake damage here from the two major earthquakes in 2015 and 1934. In 1934, the earthquake killed more than 10,000 people and caused countless damage to structures that were thousands of years old. In 2015, nearly 9,000 people died and the financial impact was more than $10 billion USD so a modest entrance fee to structures that could be thousands of years old is a small price to pay to restore the structure and help the local economy. We hired a guide and driver to get here. The guide knows so much more than your typical guidebook and will answer your questions. We used Pradip Lama (Pradiplama@hotmail.com) as our guide and he was terrific. There is damage to this temple but you are surrounded by buildings that are thousands of years old so a little earthquake damage is understandable. Soak up the history.
