Built by King Bhupatindra Malla in 1702 the five-storey, 30m-high stone building survived  even the 1934 earthquake.

You are free to climb the mighty stairway leading up the temple.  It is said that each of the guardians on either side are ten times stronger than the ones under it. A the bottom plinth are the wrestlers Jayamel and Phattu who will meet later on as well. Above them are two elephants, followed by two lions, then two  griffins and finally the tantric goddesses Byaghrini and Singhini.

Royal Bath (Naga Pokhari)
With your back to the taleju temple you’ll see a small nondescript gate in the upper left corner. This leads through to the elaborate royal bath known as Naga Pokhari.

Built in 1678 by Jitamitra Malla from a natural spring it is also considered a hiti as the water pours from a stone water spout into a basin.

Two gilded Naga’s (serpents) guard over the bath along with more serpents carved from the stone surrounding it.
If it’s not flooded (monsoon season) follow the steps down into the hiti area above bath (don’t worry it’s allowed).
Pause in front of the stone and semi-gilded water spout. Where you are standing is where the ritual bathing of the Taleju statue takes place.

 


 

Palace of 55 Windows

Built in 1696 the Palace of 55 Windows is one of the most eye catching buildings in the square. In 1936 much of the lower floors were destroyed by the earthquake, however, the ornate wooden windows and outer walls survived.
I’ve counted them and there really are 55 windows. Though some of the narrow slats seem to have been counted as full windows.

       Bhaktapur Durbar Square is the plaza in front of the royal palace of the old Bhaktapur Kingdom, 1400m above sea level. It is one of three Durbar Squares in the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal, all of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.


 


Bhaktapur Durbar Square
 

          The Bhaktapur Durbar Square is located in the current town of Bhaktapur, also known as Bhadgoan, which lies 13 km east of Kathmandu. While the complex consists of at least four distinct squares (Durbar Square, Taumadhi Square, Dattatreya Square and Pottery Square), the whole area is informally known as the Bhakapur Durbar Square and is a highly visited site in the Kathmandu Valley.

Peacock Window


          This narrow little street, packed with souvenir shops, contains what many consider to be the   greatest woodcarving in Kathmandu.

          Walk about 35 meters down the alley and look up at the red bricked wall beside you to the right at   about a second floor level.

          You’ll eventually come across a square wooden window with a peacock carving.

Bisket Jatra (New Year) Festival in Bhaktapur

          Bisket Jatra is an annual event in Bhaktapur, Nepal. This festival is celebrated during start of Bikram Sambat New year. According to myth this celebration is the "festival after the death of the serpent". Different part of Bhaktapur city celebrate this festival according to own ritual. Most happening place during festival is Bhaktapur darbar square (Khwopa Layeku), Thimi balkumari, Bodde etc. In Bhaktapur durbar square, a huge chariot carrying a statue of the god Bhairava is pulled by hundreds of people to the Khalna Tole. Approximately a month ago, the chariot is assembled near Nyatapole temple (five stair temple). Most spectacular event on Bhaktapur durbar square is a huge tug of war between eastern and western part of town. Each team try to pull to their side but later the chariot is headed toward Khalna Tole. A huge approximately 25 meters Yoh si (lingo) is erected in the stone called yoni(a female genital) base. In the evening of New Year, the Yoh si is pulled down as the New Year is officially commences.


 

 

 

       On 25 April 2015, another major earthquake damaged many buildings in the square. The main temple in Bhaktapur's square lost its roof, while the Vatsala Devi temple, famous for its sandstone walls and gold-topped pagodas, was demolished by the quake.


        A tourist in Bhaktapur, a short distance from Kathmandu, caught on camera the moment Saturday's devastating earthquake hit the city causing thousands of deaths and widespread damage.

Bhaktapur Durbar Square - Statue of King Bhupatindra Malla


King Bhupatindra is rumored to have built this ornate statue of himself that faces the Palace of 55 Windows.
It’s worth using a zoom lens to get a close-up view of the gilded figure. The king is seen sitting in prayer with a bell behind him. If you get a close enough look, you can make out the intricate work on the statue. Including the rings on his fingers.

Bhairabnath Temple

Bhairabnath Temple

 

          The broad-fronted, triple-roofed Bhairabnath Temple is dedicated to Bhairab, the fearsome incarnation of Shiva, whose consort occupies the Nyatapola Temple across the square. Despite Bhairab’s fearsome powers and his massive temple, the deity is depicted here as a disembodied head just 15cm high! Casually stacked against the north wall of the temple are the enormous wheels and runners from the chariot used to haul the image of Bhairab around town during the Bisket Jatra Festival in mid-April.

 

          The first temple on this site was a modest structure built in the early 17th century, but King Bhupatindra Malla added an extra storey in 1717 and a third level was added when the temple was rebuilt after the 1934 earthquake. The final version of the temple has a similar rectangular plan to the Bhimsen Temple in Patan’s Durbar Sq.

 

          A small hole in the temple's central door (below a row of carved boar snouts) is used to push offerings into the temple’s interior, but priests gain entry through the small Betal Temple , on the south side of the main pagoda.

 

          The temple’s facade is guarded by two brass lions holding the Nepali flag, the only national flag that is not rectangular or square. To the right of the door is an image of Bhairab painted on rattan, decorated with a gruesome garland of buffalo guts. Head here at dusk to hear traditional devotional music.

Siddhi Lakshmi Temple (Lohan Dega)
The stone temple with several attendants running up its central stairs in pairs is the Siddhi Lakshmi Temple.
The attendants here are rather unusual compared to the “guardians” found on nearby temples staircases.
Take note of the first pair showing a man on one side and woman on the other both with a dog on a leash and pulling along a child.  The successive plinths have a pair of horses, rhinos, man-lions and finally a pair of camels.

Bhaktapur’s impressive Durbar Square is surrounded by spectacular architecture and vividly showcases the skills of the Newari artists and craftsmen over several centuries. The square was serverely damaged by an earthquake in 1934 and hence appears very spacious when compared with the other ones located in Kathmandu and Patan.

Taleju Temple (1553 AD) is presided over by Goddess Taleju, the lineage deity of Malla rulers. It used to have 99 beautiful courtyards, but because of earthquakes and time, the number has now been reduced to only seven.

 

Taleju Temple

Taleju, the largest temple of the Durbar Square, was built by Mahendra Malla in the sixteenth century. The shrine of Taleju is the most exquisite of all the temples in the square and for a reason. Taleju Bhawani was the clan goddess of the Malla royalty. In all three ancient kingdoms of the valley – Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur, Malla Kings have erected temples to Taleju, their tutelary deity. Since Bhaktapur is the original home of Malla Kings, the Taleju Temple of Bhaktapur is the oldest Taleju of the three.Standing on a 12-stage platform in Trishul chowk, the Taleju temple towers over the ancient Durbar Square. During the Malla era, and later in the Shah era too, it was forbidden to build a house taller in structure than Taleju for this, it was said, would insult the goddess and make her hostile and vengeful.

There are twelve miniature temples around the main pagoda, each dedicated to a different Hindu deity. These Lilliputian temples built around a main shrine are called Kacha Dewal – branch temples built as a group where other deities are installed. The temple is open to Hindus each year solely on the ninth day of the Dashain festival. The temple in its present state is mainly the work of Pratap Malla, for it is known that Pratap Malla made many renovations to Taleju during his time which significantly contributed to its appearance.

What is remarkable about the allure of Taleju in the ancient Kathmandu valley is that Taleju is in reality an imported goddess. She came to Kathmandu from South India, and by the 14th century had become the royal Malla deity. There are many folklores surrounding how Taleju inspired different Malla kings to adopt her and engage in different events. One such story tells that the temple was constructed in the shape of a Yantra (a form of mandala) on guidance of the goddess Taleju herself. In fact, it is also said that Taleju attended the dedication ceremony of the temple disguised as a bee.

The Fasidega Temple  

The Fasidega temple is dedicated to Shiva and from the top of the staircase provides some good views of the immediate surroundings. Nothing much remains of this temple since the 2015 earthquake. Much had been made of the apparent ugliness of this temple. It is in fact a survivor from the 1934 earthquake. The white shrine at the top was meant to be a temporary building while the original temple was rebuilt.  That never happened and it’s unlikely to make the priority list for rebuilding today.

DATTATREYA SQUARE (TACHAPAL TOL)
As you emerge into Dattatreya Square take a moment to take it all in. If you look up the square from the road you just came from then the Bhimsen temple should be to your left and the three roofed building up ahead is Dattatreya Temple. The square itself is known also as Tachapal Tol and it was probably the first square used as the capital by royalty in Nepal until the 16th century.

Many of the buildings here are much older though. There are also many small side streets to explore from the square that still look as if they are centuries old.

As you walk towards the Dattatreya temple you’ll pass the tall stone pillar with garuda on top facing it. The two other pillars have a conch and chakr mounted at  the top.   On either side of the temple steps are stone statues of the two wrestlers we saw earlier - Jayamel and Phattu.


The temple was  built in 1427 by King Yaksha Malla, then restored  in 1458. It’s said to be the only temple in Nepal dedicated to Dattatreya who is part of the trinity of Vishnu, Shiva and Brama.

Legend tells of the temple being built using the  timber from a single tree. Astute observers will notice that the front area is a little different from
the rest of the temple as it was added later. The base of the temple has several erotic carvings.


If you come by here at about 7pm the front porch area is usually filled with local musicians on traditional instruments.

Watercolor of  Changu Narayan Temple complex at Bhaktapur, in 1854, painted by Henry Ambrose Oldfield


This painting of the Changu Narayan Temple complex at Bhaktapur (Bhatgaon) is inscribed on the verso by Oldfield: 'Narayn-Chok, Bhatgaon'. As described by the British Library, "Bhaktapur was founded in the 9th century and rose to prominence under the Malla dynasty. It remained a valley kingdom until the late 15th century when it became a sovereign state, together with Kathmandu and Patan. All three have similar architecture and were built around Durbar Squares containing Palace and Temple complexes.

The Changu Narayan temple is the oldest site in the valley which is dedicated to Shiva. The pillar in front of the temple is topped by a statue of Garuda, Vishnu's vehicle, in the shape of a man with wings and a cobra around his neck. This pillar is now broken and the statue stands on the ground, still in front of the temple. To the right of the pillar is a statue, in a niche, of Vishnu, in his incarnation as Narasimha, the man-lion."

 

 

 

Built in 1696 the Palace of 55 Windows is one of the most eye catching buildings in the square.

Built in 1696 the Palace of 55 Windows is one of the most eye catching buildings in the square. In 1936 much of the lower floors were destroyed by the earthquake, however, the ornate wooden windows and outer walls survived.
I’ve counted them and there really are 55 windows. Though some of the narrow slats seem to have been counted as full windows.

I think everything typed made a great deal of sense.

But, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title?
I ain't saying your information is not good,
but what if you added a headline to maybe grab people's attention? I mean Buddhist
Monastery and Meditation Center in Thailand is a
little plain. You should look at Yahoo's front
page and see how they write post titles to get people
to open the links. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get people excited about what
you've got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your blog
a little bit more interesting.
