  • Bazar-Durga Temple was before the old palace's Durbar square had collapsed in the earthquake. It was fun and had good in 2004, when the image is. Seems to take considerable time to recover so completely collapsed.

  • Vatsala Temple was built in 1672 by King Jagat Prakash Malla while the Taleju Bell which was in front of the temple (Temple was destroyed in 2015 quakes) was placed there by King Jaya Ranjit Malla in 1737. The beautiful Taleju Bell is still standing. I have rated it 5 stars based on a strong hope that this beautiful temple is going to be rebuilt to it's former glory.

  • This stone temple is without doubt a smaller version of the Patan Krishna mandir. It has three steppen base. The colonnade has fourteen octagonal pillars like the Patan temple. There is no upper storey, but there are eight features above the cornice; at the corners are octagonal turrets, in the form of miniature temples, and four small pavilions are set on the faces of the Shikhara. The structure is completed by a tapering Shikhara and a finial with two bell-shaped members, amalakas, kalasha, and a trident. The temple was built by Bhupatindra Malla in the late seventeenth or early eighteenth century and consecrated to Batsala Devi. She is probably a form of Durga as the goddess in the pavilion above the main door and the image of as eighteen-armed Mahishamardini located inside the sanctum door suggest. - Kathmandu Valley Inventory
