  • 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.

  • 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

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.
