Nyatapola Temple, Bhaktapur

(4.7/5 based on 130+ 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.
