This is apparently the "male temple" in the square and does very much get overshadowed by it's much bigger next door neighbour. It is very beautiful in it's own right though and the carvings are very intricate.

This temple is also found situated in the Taumadhi Square of Bhaktapur. It is 3 tiered story in the Pagoda style. Bhairavnath temple is just across from the Nyatapola temple. Like every other temple it has its own unique designs.

While this Bhairavnath Temple is a large and imposing structure on its own, it gets overshadowed by the Nyatapola Temple right next to it. We noticed a lot of tourists just walk by with a mere glance in its direction. It was their loss, because...More
