How could the huge statues guarding Nyatapola Temple leave anyone insensitive? Wander around Taumadhi Square at dusk, when the men of Nyatapola Temple start singing and praying, sat on the square, next to vegetable sellers and playing children. Simply magic!

During my exploration of Bhaktapur, it was inspiring to see how well Nyatapola Temple and Bhairabnath Temple survived the 2015 earthquake. These temples are two of the historic iconic sites in Taumadhi Square. The fact that they survived so relatively unscathed must be a source...More
