Pottery Square, Bhaktapur

3.7
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. Make Pottery Square part of your personalized Bhaktapur itinerary using our Bhaktapur day trip planner .

    Pottery square is the place located at Bhakapur where people make pots, khutrukes, etc. You can learn the process of making pots here. Local people use the products for daily use.  more »

    Pottery Square was a pleasant surprise. We turned a corner and went down a quiet street to see so many hand made pots. It makes you so aware of all the things we take for granted in our everyday life.  more »

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.
