Nyatapola Temple, Bhaktapur

4.7
Admire the incredible architecture of Nyatapola Temple, the temple of the Hindu goddess of prosperity. Built in 1702 during the reign of Bhupatindra Malla, the five-story temple displays the best of local art, culture, and religion. To reach the temple you need to use a stairway, where you can see stone figures of the temple's guardians, as well as eight lucky Buddhist signs carved besides the doors. Although you cannot enter the temple, which is reserved exclusively for priests, you can take some amazing photos from outside. Locals will tell you that this temple has survived several strong earthquakes, while some smaller temples in the area were completely destroyed.

  • It's good tourist destination in in Bhaktapur, Nepal. It's one of the world heritage site in Nepal. There are professional guides available in the places which are really good but sometimes you may need to bargain. But don't bother, you will be fine with out them.
  • A place called city of devotes. Really it amazing and beautiful. I love this place because it is different and it is one of the old historical place of Nepal.
  • The view was awesome like its history... located in the kathamanu valley you love to enjoy your weekend here...
  • Beautiful temple. If you open up your third eye you can see DOCTOR STRANGE. Past, present, future. Alternate realities.
  • Soaring high above the other temple the nyatapolo temple is the best example of ancient pagoda temple of Nepal. Built centuries ago this temple still dominates the place. Filed with artistic wood and stone carving, this place reflects the glorious past of the inhabitants Newar people and Nepal itself.
