Another beautiful old temple to see on the tour in this old town World Heritage site. Stop and take pictures and imagine the lifestyles of these nobles/royals who worshiped here in their day!

The official guide from the Hanuman-Dhoka Durbar Conservation Program lists Dega Taleju Temple (ref 29) as a separate much smaller structure to the main Taleju Temple (ref 38) to which previous reviews seem to refer. The latter was built in 1564 by King Mahendra Malla and is the tallest structure in the square.
It apparently an 'ultra-sacrosanct' temple which is opened to the public only once a year during Dashain.

It’s worth it to visit this temple. You see the Hindus praying and giving flowers to the statues. Just sit down and get this special feeling

This is a significant temple in the Durbah Square but is not open to the public and even for Hindu's it is apparently restricted. It is behind the Seto Bhairab on the north eastern side of the square and you can see the temple from behind the walls. The 35 Meter high temple was built in1564 and it only suffered minor damage in the earth quake. of 2015.

This is part of the wonderful cultural experience of Durbar Square, a Unesco World Heritage site.
The building is traditional and beautiful, It still bears scars from the eathquake in 2015. However, mostly it has been restored so this building is now in a much better condition than a lot of others which are still being re-built.
A must-see place to visit along with the whole of the Durbar Square area.

There are many temples to appreciate and see while visiting Kathmandu. The stories associated with each temple are always interesting.

An important temple, the Degu Taleju Temple, is far from being reconstructed after the 2015-earthquake. It is not clear when it will happen as several bodies are supposed to be fixing it with money coming from various sources including the Japanese Government.

Its the highest structure of those times, and massive temple, but is open only once a year on Dussera, so cannot be seen
