Bhaktapur

As one of the three historical kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley, Bhaktapur is definitely a place to visit. Not only does it boast a Durbar Square (meaning royal square) to rival those of Kathmandu and Patan but, fortunately, the largest and five-tiered temple survived the 2015 earthquake and its aftershocks and can still be admired.

The town is also a town known for its pottery; a stroll around the temples and surrounding streets was always something I looked forward to.

Reconstruction and repare works of the temples are ongoing

The shop owner was actually referring to it - Matt and I didn’t get it at first and thought he was talking about some haunted place or myths of ghost spirits in Bhaktapur... smile
