There is a Taleju Temple in both Kathmandu and Bhaktapur and I recommend seeing both! Read about their construction and the legend of the Goddess Taleju, a version of Durga, before you go so you can better appreciate the history, legends, and construction. Only Hindus can enter the temple, once a year, but take photos of its exquisite construction. These... More

This is the oldest Taleju Devi Temple of the three different temples at each Durbar Square. It is also the one most heavily guarded by armed security personnel. The doorway has beautiful art work, and the royal bathing pond at the side is also worth seeing. But there's not a whole lot to see, as a lot of it is... More

The entrance of this temple and some of the parts are very interesting but unfortunately the most beautiful part of it is forbidden for non Hindus so it is impossible to appreciate the real importance and beauty of the site. If you are in Durbar square it is worth the visit, otherwise don't bother
