In the centre of the square, you’ll find the Nyatapola Temple, one of the highest pagoda-style temples in Nepal. Throughout the town you’ll find medieval buildings with beautiful wood carvings and, as the town is largely pedestrianised, it feels like a huge open air museum. After peak hours, when most of the day-trippers are gone, Bhaktapur suddenly becomes hushed and a mystical atmosphere descends. Wandering through the narrow alleyways, you’ll pass local women spinning wool and and toymakers carving tiny wooden figurines. You’ll stay in a small cosy hotel right on Durbar Square.
