Bhimsen Temple is dedicated to Bhimsen (known as Bhima in India), one of the five Pandavas of the Mahabarata. Bhima was known for his amazing strength, so it's rather fitting that his temple had the strength to survive the earthquake that did a lot of damage to neighboring temples and much of Nepal. Anyway, it's a beautiful temple with an... More

I do not know of a temple dedicated to Bhim apart from this one. It is a 3 storied temple on the northwest side of Patan Durbar square and is noted for its 3 interconnected golden windows. Entry inside is prohibited and there are supports on the north side.

Bhimsen temple is located at one end of the Durbar Square and is dedicated to Bhimsen of Mahabharata. Must admit I havent seen or heard of any temple dedicated to Bhim elsewhere. Small temple. One can visit the first floor by taking off footwear. Be cautious while u climb, wooden steps are too steep.

This temple is one of the many in Durbar Square, Patan. It is at the far end and is a three storey pagoda. The photo of the octagonal buildings with the dome is not Bhimsen Temple but a Krishna Temple at the opposite end of the square. They are both nice but the photo is incorrect.
