  • The art museum is a classic built up, but contains some very old stone reliefs and shapes, thankaer (paintings on canvas, for example. Mandalas) and brass works, which makes the Museum worth visiting, in order to get an impression of woodwork, painting and stone work throughout the centuries. As a curiosity, one can also see the nepalske Kings.

  • This is the Museum is the main attaction of Bhaktapur among the many other sites the ticket is really cheap and for student they do have a discount and we have to pay to have a photo or video and while visitng this museum we can visit two more museum which is located in Dattatrya area.

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.
