“Temple Maximus”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

What a great temple. Totally dominating the square and providing a fun hang out. The detailed roof carvings and statues flanking the stair case are stunning.

You will get some great photos here in all lights.

“Imposing Temple”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Nyatapola Temple looks over one of the squares in Bhaktapur. It is great to take photos of and great to climb and take photos from the top of it. If there is a festival on, it will be busy though. So you will have to elbow your way through the crowds. However, you will get some great photographs of the local children sitting atop the elephant statues. This temple is a must see on your trip to Bhaktapur.

“avoid the restaurant”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

The restaurant at Nyatapola is expensive and a tourist trap. It is not local food and the quality is terrible and not worth it.

“Interesting temple”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

An imposing old temple in the centre of Bhaktapur that is well worth a visit. You cannot go inside the building, but you can walk up to the top and watch the world go by - the Nepalese do this a lot.

“Beautiful Ancient Temple”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

The height of this five storeys temple is at about 30 meters tall. It is one of the tallest temple in all around Kathmandu Valley, and the tallest one in Bhaktapur. Since the stairs are possible to be climbed in, so we can see almost some part of Bhaktapur city and the Himalaya mountains in the distance from the top floor. The temple has many great details, include ten statues in the stairs. It has an ancient and uniqued lock to lock the temple door. I was told by the guide, that if the lock are broken so nobody can not repair it.

This beautiful ancient temple are well maintained. And visit this temple is a must, when someone is visiting Bhaktapur.
