These two statues are located right at the entrance of Bhaktapur's Durbar Squares, and feature stone work of great and intricate detail. It is just a small glimpse of the kind of art work one gets to witness upon entering the main square and visiting the surrounding areas and temples.

The statues of Ugrachandi and Bhairav are impressive and they occupy an important location just inside the entrance of Bhaktapur Durbar Square. The photo on your site here, though, with the lady in a sky blue sari, is of the Narasimha statue which is close by. This is an even more impressive statue which comes alive from any angle you...

Ugrabhairava is a manifestation of the lord Shiva and Ugrachandi is a manifestation of his consort Parvati (in the Durga form). The Ugrachandi idol has 18 arms and is shown... More

If you like to see something special in Nepal, visit Bhaktapur, 12km from KTM. Temples with golden roofs, highest stupa in Nepal - and not a museum bat living city. The only problem is you must pay Rs 1100 for entrance. It is not much for tourists, but in Nepali standard it is a week salary. Still, go! I should... More
