Pottery Square, Bhaktapur

(3.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Absolutely love the work the pottery sellers do, beautiful and unique objects at great prices. A definitely must visit place when in Bhaktapur! 
  • Locals sell hand made clay pots. Interesting to see the precision of the makers. There are lot of sellers. 
  • Baghtuple urbon. It is a square ceramic factories and stores to focus. View only earthenware pots are lined up in some ways, Nepal said.
