Bhaktapur Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Bhaktapur used to be the capital of the valley before Kathmandu got the honours at the beginning of the 17th century. At one of the main squares, the multi-roofed temple will undoubtedly make a lasting impression. Due to their enormous size and impressive carvings, the temples in Newari style rule the square. One of the floors of one of the two former temples is turned partly into a restaurant. At the entrance, vendors sell embroideries, bangles and pottery (Bhaktapur is the pottery centre of Katmandu Valley).
One of the side alleys of the square leads to Bhaktapur Durbar Square. The square offers an impressive sight of a mixture of space, temples and the famous Window Palace with its Golden Gate. It used to be the case that visitors to this square had to pay an entrance fee.
