An interesting Hindu temple although similar to others around Kathmandu area. This place is less crowded than the ones in the main city, but more dirty. There were quite a few diseased dogs and monkeys, lots of construction work, smoke and rubbish lying around.

As is customary, the lead up to the temple is dotted with shops and people peddling much of the same stuff you can get everywhere.

Located on a hill nearby the busy city centre, this temple sits on the very top. The village surrounding has a lot of flavour but is shows that it's been rebuilt after the 2015 earthquake. Full of smalls shops selling crafts, the temple is majestic even amidst all the rubble. Revered by the locals, it's a nice way to spend an afternoon.

It is situated some 20 km from Kathmandu, but it takes like one hour drive to get there. But it’s worth it. One of my favourite places during my stay in Nepal.
Beautiful temple with stone and wood carvings. The temple is on top a hill. From the entrance you climb the steps through the village passing artisan studios and shops. According to legends Changu Narayan temple existed as early as 325 a.d. Read a legend about Changu Narayan before you go. A real hidden gem.

If you happen to visit bakthapur then you must definitely try the bakthapur yogurt or “dhahi”.
Shopping in bhaktapur is extremely cheap you can always bargain with vendors.

This Architecture is a must see , the entire design of the temple with its courtyard shows the level of Architectural skills people had while following the ancient hindu religion. This is a must visit temple for the grandeur itself.

Vishnu Temple around 25kms outside Kathmandu, near Bakthapur. Granite & wood carvings with paintings all around. On a hill, to walk 200mtrs from the parking area, both sides of the road that leads to the temple have handicraft work of wood carvings, wall hangings, handwoven caps/hats, cotton-canvas paintings of Buddhists & Hindu gods/rituals/ways of life & painting classes. Few tourists taken there, do not miss. If you find a good priest, he will share lots of stories about the temple's history & generally about Hindu & Buddhist Tantric practices. He also recommends many more such sites in Nepal

Changunarayan is said to be one of the oldest temples in The Valley. One can reach the temple following the uphill path from the ticket office. There are shops and houses along the way and the whole walk is pleasant and relaxed. There are people selling things but they are not pushy. The temple itself is really ornate and beautiful and it is well used. There are offerings everywhere and statues with flower garlands, etc. One can walk around the courtyard and the sides of this little gem, but not inside the inner sanctum. Worth visiting for sure!

Surrounded by pine trees, the whole hill has a magical energy. Badly destroyed by the earthquake the community has made a big effort to rebuilt and to safe the temple which was damaged but not destroyed. Terrific place for picnic and walks, best to reach from Bhaktapur by road or you walk from Thali up the hill.

This temple is very old so the appreciation of the crafts used to build it is very high. We were there when a group of Hindu worshippers were praying and it made our experience very memourable.
