We should have organised a lot more time. There is much to see, not just in the Square but in all the surrounding areas. Read up before you go and maximise the enjoyment.

For Nepal Durbar Squares are the soul. This Durbar Square looks more clean than in Kathmandu. But foreigners cannot get into the old palace. A little pity. Really want to know inside.

You are instantly brought to Medievel City as you enter Bhaktapur Durbar Square. It is one of the UN World Cultural Heritage city, therefore the entrance fees is very crazy (USD15 per pax). It has many beautiful temples/ancient architecture and interesting daily lives of the local Newari community.The temples are very well preserved and clean, and most of it are closed and only open for worshiping at stipulated time of festivals. The city is so colorful which makes it picture perfect for photography. Old colorful wooden shops/house and brick buildings makes a very pretty background for your photo. You can sit and enjoy the whole city with good food at one of the roof top restaurant and watch the locals making their day ends.

Bhaktapur was like stepping back in time. With the old Newari architecture temples and much more. There was a real sense of history and community. Watch the pots being made, and some nice squares with little shops. Well worth a visit.
