Its the highest structure of those times, and massive temple, but is open only once a year on Dussera, so cannot be seen

The inner complex of the Durbar Square holds the Taleju Temple, dedicated to the female royal deity of the Malla kings, which can only be visited by Hindus once a year on the ninth day of Dashain. The goddess Taleju, or Taleju Bhavani, considered to be the wrathful form of the Goddess Durga, has a special place of worship among the Newar society in Kathmandu. The Kumari or Living Goddess, a controversial tradition practised by ultra-religious Hindus, is a young girl considered to be the human manifestation of the Goddess Taleju. The history behind this is very interesting.

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.
