Bhaktapur is a place of Devotees, it’s a city of culture. Bhaktapur, or Khwopa in traditional language, is also a world heritage site listed by the UNESCO. Bhaktapur is different from Kathmandu and Lalitpur, two other cities of Kathmandu Valley.
When you enter the city, you’ll experience a different atmosphere, a quiet place not so far from the busy roads, but far enough to enjoy the city without being disturbed by the traffics. The architecture here is magnificent. You’ll experience the same architectural beauty as you’d experience them hundreds of years ago.
Whether you’re traveling, or want to take a break, or you’ve just completed trekking and looking for someplace to chill, Nyatapola Guest House has collected a list of places to visit in Bhaktapur.
Bhaktapur Durbar Square is the place where rulers stayed before the 1969 AD. Now, the building houses the National Art Gallery. It is also one of the most important tourist destinations. The Square consists of Ancient Temples and Shrines, historical heritage sites, and sculptures.
The local travelers are seen daily and is a place for most locals to gather and chat with their friends and families in the evening after a hectic workday. If you are a tourist, you’ll have to pay a certain amount to enter the Heritage city.
Bhaktapur is also known for its famous artistic potteries made out of clay. You can still see people making various pots, Khutruke (piggy bank), and other vessels in a pottery wheel. It’s really satisfying to watch the potter make various potteries out of a lump of clay.
Nyatapola Guest House recommends you to visit the Pottery Square and experience the lovely sight of the wheels spinning and the potteries being created. You could also ask to try, the potter will definitely be happy to teach you.
Dattatreya Temple is another historic monument that Nyatapola Guest House recommends to visit in Bhaktapur. The temple was built by King Yakshya Malla in 1427 A.D, and it is known to be built with the stem of a single tree.
55 Window Palace (55 Jhyale durbar) is located in the center of Bhaktapur Durbar Square. The name itself is enough to know what you can expect there. The palace consists of 55 traditional windows, and it was built by the King Bhupatindra Malla. The place is beautiful, and you can observe the traditional exterior beauty and is a place worth visiting.
Right at the entrance of the ancient Bhaktapur city at Dudhpati, a beautiful pond, Siddha Pokhari, welcomes you. It is known to be built by King Yakshya Malla around 600 years ago. Around the Siddha Pokhari, beautiful statues of Gods can be overserved. People gather here to enjoy the peaceful environment with their families and friends.
The guesthouse is designed creatively with different types of accessories used in Newari culture. You will feel like living in a museum.
The Nyatapola Guest House is located centrally near the Pottery Square. The Nyatapola Temple, one of the ancient monuments in Bhaktapur, can be reached easily by a few minutes’ walks.
Nyatapola Guest House family welcomes you to Nepal. Hope you all have a wonderful stay.
