Overview


Bhaktpur is another important royal palace in Kathmandu valley which is the least developed than Kathmandu and Patan Durbar Square. Bhaktapur, the Newari city, is 16 km. far from Kathmandu. Before 15th century the whole Kathmandu valley was ruled by Bhaktpur. In 15th century, a Malla king, who had 3 sons, made three kingdoms for their convenience. The constructions of the large amount of temples in Durbar Squares in the valley are the result of the tough competition between the kings over their power. As there was always competition and fight between three kingdoms, they lost their power in 1768 at what time started another monarchy know as Shah Dynasty in Nepal.

Bhaktapur literally means the city of devotees known as the city famous for woodcarving, handmade papers, pottery and cloth weaving. People in Bhaktapur are really cultural and traditional. Their main profession is farming. Before Bhaktapur was known as “Bhadgaun” that means the rice village.

Around every corner of the square you will see the narrow paved streets harbor hidden shrines and statues. It gives you a fantastic atmosphere to relax the entire day in major cultural heritages and temples.
