Taleju Chowk, Bhaktapur
(3.2/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
The oldest part of the former royal palace, Taleju Chowk represents an important religious site both for locals and pilgrims. Although non-Hindus cannot enter, all visitors may look through the doorway for a glimpse of the interior. Outside, explore other parts of this 16th-century masterpiece of architecture, from the golden entryway, to the courtyard and numerous wall carvings depicting scenes from Indian mythology. Look for the statue of the goddess Taleju Bhawani, to whom the temple is dedicated, kneeling on a column. Don't bring or wear anything made of leather, since such items are prohibited. Arrange to visit Taleju Chowk and other attractions in Bhaktapur using our Bhaktapur vacation trip planner.

  • It is located in the former Royal Palace is located on the Center, historic town of Bhaktapur on the outskirts of Kathmandu Durbar square Temple. Indicated the Board said could go up top of the temple, but guards at the entrance, non-Hindus cannot enter, and is written as such. Said I don't especially want to see will.

  • The entrance of this temple and some of the parts are very interesting but unfortunately the most beautiful part of it is forbidden for non Hindus so it is impossible to appreciate the real importance...  more »
  • Since you have come up here visiting deserves ... not only the patterns but also the exquisite private pool royalty. Shame you can't go inside the temple.
