(200+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
Observe the potters at work at Pottery Square, and then take the opportunity to purchase finished articles from the shops that line the square. Generations of potters have worked in this area--actually a network of small streets--one of two traditional pottery hubs in Bhaktapur. Watch as artisans fire the pots in straw and mud kilns at the back of the square, and then stroll around to admire the rows upon rows of pots baking in the sun, rotated every so often by their maker. You can combine your visit with a stop at the nearby temples and shrine. To visit Pottery Square and other attractions in Bhaktapur, use our Bhaktapur trip generator.

  • Walking East from Durbar square in bactable, about 15 minutes. Rice after the harvest in the square went 11 months early so many spread straw mats and dried, was arranged around a lot of rustic earthenware pottery. In sight of the peaceful village strongly remains in the impression.

  • Very good photo opportunities. You can watch the whole Potter craft at work. Wants to sleep but a craftsman at work this is subject to a charge.

  • Go on a voyage of discovery in this space where you can see everything from the clay will be ' made ' to the finished products coming out of the oven.
