Changu Narayan, Bhaktapur

Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web
Centuries old and seemingly frozen in time, Changu Narayan represents one of the oldest temples in Nepal and an exquisite example of Licchavi-era architecture. Dedicated to the god Vishnu, the temple sits at the top of a hill surrounded by a forest. Walk inside to see a figure of Vishnu's consort Garuda, or stroll around the building to spot sculptures relating to the god's various incarnations. Put Changu Narayan and other Bhaktapur attractions into our Bhaktapur vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • 昌古寺庙位于巴德岗郊外,坐公交车30分钟左右可以到达寺庙脚下的小镇,门票很便宜,寺庙保存很完好,但是尼泊尔地震损毁严重。寺庙后面有片小树林,夏天去非常漂亮。 
  • Approx 6km from Bhaktapur situated on a hilltop. Very intresting old inscriptions and statues of Narayan (Vishnu) in his different avatars. Quiet place to relax from polluted and hectic Kathmandu. 
  • Old temple is registered on the World Heritage list, is also restructuring by the fire were Ricci VI Dynasty building, wood carving, stone carving and also there are a lot of cultural heritage.

  • Scenic place at a height away from the hassle and traffic of the city.. Great view of Bhaktapur.. Very laid back..
  • Changu Narayan Temple is located in Changunarayan VDC of Bhaktapur District, Nepal. Changu Narayan temple existed as early as 325 A.D. in the time of King Licchavi King Hari Datta Verma and it is one of Nepal's richest structures historically as well as artistically.
  • its a good way to find the way without using any brocers...
  • “Small but beautiful” If you are in the Bhaktapur area you definitely must go to this one as well. It takes about 30 min. drive round trip and half an hour at the venue. It is another Nepalese temple on the top of a hill. On the way you will experience great views around, promise you...
  • Very old and beautiful temple,peaceful and nice place.
