Just off the main square, you can see all the pots laying out in the sun in Pottery Square. The people are very friendly and happy to give a demonstration. Great for souvenirs!

So many things sold that you never know how they are made or what toil it took to bring the finished product to market, but here on the street you can see pottery of all sorts unfold. An enjoyable part of the Bhaktapur experience.

I think what makes it fascinating for so many is that it's done right there in front of you. You can watch the whole process from beginning to end.

Nice to pass by and watch the potters at work making the pottery, firing the furnace and drying the pottery in the sun.

It was fascinating to walk through the vast displays of pottery. Pots, pitchers and banks were displayed in various shapes and forms. It was obvious that this was a community of hard working and talented people.

The place is full of learning and shopping experiences, if you are fond of art and clay. It's rejuvenating to learn to make the pottery and take that memories home with you. They still use the furnace and the old process of firing the credentials...More

Amazing watching many workers spread out countless rows of biscuit clay pots of all descriptions to dry in the sun. Diverse in their use, some for candles, incense, food etcetera.

Anyone visiting Braktapur should take time to walk to the pottery square. Very interesting to see the potters working the wheels and to see the pots in various stages of the process. Quite a sight to see the pots drying in the sun.
