I love Kirtipur coz not many tourists make the effort to come here. Most of its historic treasures survived the 2015 disaster. The sleepy town gives you a wonderful sense of faded grandeur. And the Bagh Bhairab temple is imposing. You should also visit Uma Maheshwar temple (ask locals for directions). It's not reviewed here on TA, but I posted some pics here. The temple is flanked by 2 elephants and has a triple roof. From here you have a beautiful view over part of Kathmandu valley.

I first visited 6 years ago, and on returning couldn't help but see the damage caused by the earthquake a few years ago. The architecture is still a wonder, and the displays wonderful, but much has been lost.

One of the oldest temple of Kathmandu Valley, made in early 12th century is the master piece of the city in the Hill Top. From the front, you can see the knives those were collected by the great warriors of Kritipur during the time of unification of Nepal and as you make a round,you see an amazing view of the Kathmandu valley. So, this temple, one of the hidden jewel of Kathmandu valley.

Bhairab temple are very popular in Nepal among hindu people, worshiping Bhairab provides good luck and progress. The Bagh Bhairab temple has a statue of tiger inside the temple and the tiger has opened mouth but the tongue is missing.

There is a legend popular among the locals that, a shephard lady once put the leaf of Mango tree to make a tongue of tiger. Immediately after getting the tongue, the statue became alive tiger and began to move and ended up eating the same lady. Everybody in Kirtipur was scared and they gathered for the solution and some wise men suggested to call Tantrik for the help. Immediately Tanktik gathered there and performed rituals and were able to take control of the tiger. And immediately one of the tantrik cut the tongue of the tiger, the tiger turned into statue again. Since then no-one in Kirtipur has tried to give the Bagh Bhairab leaf of tongue again.

If you are hindu they will allow you to enter and see the statue, if you are not you can still enjoy the surrounding of the Temple
You can enjoy nice valley view from here, old Newar architecture is present here, outside the temple you can see the statue of Sankhadhar Sakhwa and Deu Pukha (Water Pond) In the temple, you can also see the hanging swords which was used in the battle against the King Prithivi Narayan Shah in Kirtipur.

The Baghbhairab area is small but ancient place near Kathmandu valley. This place is build in the tip of the small hill side. Which makes it is best place to hang to clean cool air.

Weel, the temple in itself is already quite unique, not many in this style are found in Nepal, but much more than this beautiful temple, the incredible view over the valley and the Himalayas, the unique people and the city as a whole gives you some really nice day to spend. Near to Kathmandu and Patan, it is less touristic and that's also the reason why you should visit this city. Beside no expensive entrance fee and a massive display of art and culture... only missing is some kind of tourist friendly restaurants or accommodations like you find in Patan, where you could stay in a local restored house.. visiting Kirtipur for at least 2 days is my recommendation, especially if there is a festival ongoing!
