The walk to the observation area provides a view of the square and mountains which cannot be seen from street level. Like all temples unless you are into Hindu detail it was nothing special.

The monument is strong and I must say that the ones who constructed this massive structure made it with great attention and that is the reason that the massive earthquake of 25th April, 2015 could not do any harm to it..

This temple is the 5 story temple, the tallest temple in Nepal. Its a good spot for phototaking and chill to observe the local community. The temple cannot be entered, only the priest can enter. Early morning there will be local market there. You may buy some local fresh produce there.

The daily life of Bhaktapur flows through this square, and I sat on the top floor of Nyatapolo Temple to observe it! Additionally, an excellent cafe, which, sits on one side, is a great place to refuel

Taumadhi square is more impressive than the durbar square in my opinion. The towering nyatapola temple offers some amazing views of the surrounding areas, and appears to be in great shape after the earthquake. Can't say the same for a lot of the temples at durbar square, unfortunately.. HOWEVER! Be aware of kids hanging around the temple that ask you... More
