  • Below Good Good part You can see old and precious construction and temples. Bad Part Administration had done nothing to maintain such big and beautiful heritage property. Entry fee is too high. 500 NPR for Never country and 1000 NPR for others. It should not be more than 100 to 200 NPR
  • A good place to hangout. Bhaktapur Municipality is doing its best to keep this area clean. And local food and fun is always here...
  • Its one of historic place of nepal. And it's feel good to b there.
  • Beautiful place that is definitely worth the entrance fee. I would recommend getting a guide here, no need to book one in advance though, most on site guides will not charge more than 300 rupees. Don't hire the most pushy but the ones you find are most likeable
  • Bhaktapur Durbar square is a world heritage site of Nepal. Many information can be obtained from websites and other resources. It is one of the recommended places for visiting and understanding the old history, arts and culture of Kathmandu valley.

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.
