We found a local student to show us around the square and the rest of the ancient city. This was the best money we could have spend without already having a tour guide. This square was full of life and culture on a beautiful fall...More

Lots of streets radiate off Taumadhi Sq so you can wander down residents streets. Much moreso than in Kathmandu's Durbar Square. Taumadhi Square itself has too many advertising hoardings above the shops. It's RP1100 (£9) to go into Bhaktapur because they are 'preserving' it. However,...More

Wondered around the square for about 20 minutes and enjoyed the buildings as well as all the craziness around. We also enjoyed playing with the baby goats!

Without a doubt the highlight of the bhaktapur heritage tour. People queue up to get their photo taken at the historic steps. Worth just sitting there for a while and taking it all in.

This place is just across Durbar Square and another place you have to see when you are in Bhaktapur. You have here almost no damage from the earthquake and you have here also many photo opportunities.

This I think is my favourite square in Bhaktapur. Very interesting temple, surrounded by shops,small accommodations and a market place for locals to sell fresh produce first thing in the morning

This is a short walk from Durbah Square and features two significant temples, Nyatapola Temple and Bhairabnath Temple Nyatapola is five stories and 30 meters high and significant and Bhairabnath has three . This is a pleasant square with some construction work underway.

Amongst the many equally impressive squares in town this one takes the main price. Wide and surrounded by amazing structures, offering great views from the top of the main temple and animated by visitors and inhabitants of this car-free, old authentic town. You would expect...More

This should be part of any wandering tour of oldest Bhaktapur areas and Durbar square as well as the pottery square

The Taumadhi Square in the west center of the city is one of the 3 largest squares in Bhaktapur. Beautifully located and many beautiful temples to admire. On Festival days the place is decorated and bustling.

So animated place, where I feel alive to see the mix culture of daily lives of Newars from Bhaktapur. One side people are busy worshipping the deities of Ginormous Temple and on the other side, people sell fruits and vegetables. Honking is little disturbing otherwise...More

Old city, very quaint. Good place to hang out. Can buy lot of souvenirs. The various Tankha schools are a treat. You can see how the artists are so detail oriented. Should visit
