    The palace was very well maintained, a lot of people get startled​ by the amount of security there and wont enter the palace. I would recommend you to ask the guards​ who are there, they are very chilled and would answer your question and depending on the situation would also allow you to enter.

    UNESCO listed world heritage site, Bhaktapur Durbar square is more than three hundred years old. It is a must visit place in Bhaktapur. And when you are there, don't forget to taste the locally made curd popularly known as "juju dhau".

Where to stay in Bhaktapur

Peaceful and less crowded than Kathmandu, Bhaktapur lies close to the international airport, making it a good base for a Nepal vacation. You'll need to pay for a ticket to enter the city, but the proceeds from foreigners' visits help with reconstruction and restoration of Bhaktapur's countless historic buildings. Choose from a variety of accommodation options, most of them cozy, family-run guesthouses and inns situated in traditional buildings with modern amenities. Since vehicles are prohibited in Bhaktapur, plan to explore the tranquil town on foot. Fortunately, most of the hotels and guesthouses cluster around the historic center.
