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

There are so many old buildings in Bhaktapur and every building has its own story. I love some of the artwork of the buildings.

How could the huge statues guarding Nyatapola Temple leave anyone insensitive? Wander around Taumadhi Square at dusk, when the men of Nyatapola Temple start singing and praying, sat on the square, next to vegetable sellers and playing children. Simply magic!

The huge temples around the square are massive and still standing after the quake. With the families walking around and the children playing and square surrounded by temples and restaurants, Taumadhi Square reminded me of the piazzas of old Italian villages.
