The Temple used to be the junction for the people having sit there and talk about life and love. Unfortunately the Earthquake of 2015 destroyed the temple and has not been built yet. Hopefully the archaeological department of Nepal has said the temples can be built with the same old structures and ambiance. The bottom structure of stones looks like a barren hill with no trees without the temple on its top.

Durbar square is filled with temples and this is just another. Visit it if you are visiting Durbar Square.

So many temples concentrated here, but this triple-roofed one, named after the goddess Taleju, is easily viewed with its lovely painted struts.

You really need to spend the whole day at Durbar Square ....there is SO much to see ... This beautiful Temple is part of the experience . By paying to look around you are helping the Nepali people to rebuild . By spending the whole day there you are contributing to the local economy . I found after a few hours in Durbar Square my Brain was actually on fire and there was smoke coming out of my ears . Incredible ......
