  • This three-level Temple, is located next to the Temple of Niataponla, and rate it too is best with an upper Temple Niataponla. Honestly, for the second day in Nepal all these temples a bit bored and are similar to each other (with rare exception), and the more appreciate environment around them and how they fit into the space. This temple is situated on a splendid square with stunning surroundings and movement around. So past it will not pass.

  • Bhairavnath temple in Bhaktapur, located 13 km east of Kathmandu, capital city of Nepal. The three-storied temple was built by King Jagat Jyoti Malla and improve by King Bhupatindra Malla. It was dedicated to Lord Bhairava, the dreadful aspect of Lord Shiva. Legend says that Lord Bhairava head was cut off by a tantric expert in order to keep him in Bhaktapur.
