Nyatapola Temple, Bhaktapur

(4.7/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very impressive building with many many stairs and many tourists during the day. The best time is early in the morning here, then the sun comes up and a soft light illuminated the Tower

  • Nyatapola Mandir is soaring (30 meters, the highest in Nepal) temple dedicated to Lakshmi, the wife of Vishnu. Based on the number of five ("nyata" is nepalsku a five-time). The insistence on the basis of rises five towering roofs. On both sides of the steep stairs, a pair of guards, and each pair above sitting is five times stronger than that which is below. The power of the climax is achieved at the peak (inaccessible). An impressive, beautiful building, decorated with wooden rozporach exquisite images of the goddess. You can also look at the Temple from one of the nearby cafés located on the roofs. Is a different, interesting perspective.

  • Probably the most important object in the square, Taumadhi. Pagoda built in 7 months at the turn of the 1701 and 1702 to today utterly several tiered roof. The powerful art of elephants along the stairs are some extra power of this temple. Visitors almost always do here "photo shoots". Because it's worth.
