This stunning temple is Nepal’s finest example of Shikhara style architecture, not quite as popular as the Pagoda style but taller and more ornate.

This 8-sided stone temple is located near the south entrance of Patan’s Durbar Square. It’s quite different from the wooden buildings in the rest of Patan’s Durbar Square.

This temple is open to generic public only 2 or 3 times a year and I went inside the temple after the earthquake. Strongly built by our ancestors. But you don't need to go inside the temple. Just admire the beauty from outside.
