The Nyatapola Temple or simply 5 storey temple in Bhaktapur is an engineering masterpiece from a medieval Nepal. Even with the recent massive earthquake, the temple is fully intact.
This is the temple listed in the world heritage site and is one of the reasons for proud Nepal and Nepali.

The ancient city Bhaktapur lies on the Eastern part of Kathmandu valley which is also known as Bhadgaon or Khwopa. The historical monument on around signifies medieval age culture and tradition of Nepal and this old city is inhabited by indigenous Newari people in large group. you can visit to this place to experience Nepali culture,tradition,religion from right way.we are here to support you for your tours.
I loved this place even though many of the buildings were scaffolded or otherwise undergoing repair from the major earthquake a few years ago. Get the brochure- there are temples dating from centuries ago, mixed in with shops and restaurants. Peddlers are mostly bearable, with a few that won't go away. There's a huge variety of goods for sale- knitted goods, handmade paper, spices, T-shirts, "singing bowls" and other musical instruments as well as the usual jewelry, cashmere and pashmina. Even though this was the last day of our tour and our group had done more than its share to improve the economy in Nepal we still found things to buy!
Get the yogurt at Cafe Neuatapola- it's lightly sweetened and heavenly.

This is not a very big temple area, but it's a gem recognized as UNESCO world heritage. As it is hidden in the hills, it escaped destruction in the 15th century. It is the oldest temple in Nepal that has survived in its original state against all odds and dates back as far as the fourth century. It is a square building with beautifully carved beams under the two-storey roof. There are bells and columns and altars, and you can walk around the temple and admire the artwork on the walls.

Though we could not venture into this palace, just walking past it was an experience in itself because of the intricacy and finesse in the carving and sculptures on the outside. Every little square inch is filled with legend and art and makes for marvellous photographs at all angles.

This temple is located in Dattatreya Square (also known as Tachupal Square) which is near the Peacock Window. There are several businesses nearby with “Peacock” in their names There are restaurants and gift shops nearby. Be aware of walking around the square since motorbikes drive through frequently. I would also recommend wearing a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen while walking about.
There is a statue of Garuda on a column in front of the temple. At the steps to the entrance, there are two statues of Malla wrestlers.

A bit overrated if you're looking for some serious action. However, a fun thing to do especially if you're able to get hold of the guy in the traditional clothes who will let you have a go. Tip him $1 and watch him flash a wide grin if you can't (its extremely difficult!) come up with a well shaped clay pot in your 5 mines of fame.

There is a Taleju Temple in both Kathmandu and Bhaktapur and I recommend seeing both! Read about their construction and the legend of the Goddess Taleju, a version of Durga, before you go so you can better appreciate the history, legends, and construction. Only Hindus can enter the temple, once a year, but take photos of its exquisite construction. These are marvels and have been repaired over the years and since the earthquake. Do not listen to anyone telling you not to bother to see these sites as the rebuilt stages have progressed and there are many to things to see. These taleju temples are worth a visit when you get inside the durbar squares, even if you cannot go inside.

This temple is also found situated in the Taumadhi Square of Bhaktapur. It is 3 tiered story in the Pagoda style. Bhairavnath temple is just across from the Nyatapola temple. Like every other temple it has its own unique designs.
