So much to see! The richly molded Golden Gate, famous Peacock Window, Palace of 55 windows, Lion's Gate and guarding statues, and Nyatopola, the 5 story temple. Lastly, the bharat temple dedicated to Lord Buddha.

What a lovely place. With the temple, people watching, street vendors, you will find yourself entertained here for quite a while. Climb the steps of Nyatapala Temple, enjoy a cold drink at the cafe in the pagoda and watch the people go about their lives....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.
