Dattatreya Temple, Bhaktapur

(4.6/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Supposedly made from a single tree, Dattatreya Temple attracts visitors with its beautiful carvings and interesting architecture, with two Rajput wrestler statues guarding the entrance. Devotees come to worship the Dattatreya, a trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. Look closely at the carvings and notice vivid sexual graphics and erotic decorations carved in the wood and the gilded metal. Entrance to the inside of the temple for non Hindus is forbidden, but souvenir shops and a museum can be found nearby. Put Dattatreya Temple and other Bhaktapur attractions into our Bhaktapur tourist route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Within Bhaktapur Durbar Square, one can experience local tradition. Though building is damaged by earth quake. Good to take a walk around. 
  • Must Go place, Many Bollywood Movies has been shoot here. So beautiful created and crafted. Nepal Cultural Heritage. 
  • If you're in Bhaktapur are also equally, then walk to the square and view the Dattatreya Temple, is definitely worth it.......
