Tall Beautiful Nepali Temple

This is a tall Pagoda style Siddhi Laxmi temple with beautiful architecture. From the top of the temple, one gets a very nice view of Bhaktapur Darbar Square.

The place is called Taumadhi square and often called as one of the wonder inside Kathmandu valley. Its a five Storeyed Pagoda temple structure which symbolizes the nepalese architecture model anti earthquake resistant.

Massive pagoda in Bhakthapur which was not damaged by the earth quake. With the darbar square under renovation, this stands as the main attraction at Bhakthapur. There are few bars and restaurants nearby.

The temple can't be missed, always full of people sitting on the stairs and statues for pictures, or just have a great view of the square.

Nyatapola Temple is a sight to behold. After visiting all the other Durbar Squares and their surrounding areas and having come across scores of templs buildings showing effects of the earthquake on them, it is good to come across this building that was seemingly untouched by nature's destructions and still stands tall in all its glory!

This temple belongs to Siddhi Laxmi goddess and is a beauty in itself. The architecture is astounding.

This was a unique temple design and it is the tallest in the country. But what sets it off are the guardians of the steep staircase, including wrestlers armed with giant clubs, elephants and lions. This is a great photo place. Snap away. But don’t irritate the warrior brothers.

This very tall Pagoda is just minutes from the Durbar square and in a very neat square. The long staircase is flanked by animals and the carving in the pagoda is very interesting. Very nice place and almost intact of the earthquake effect
