Bhaktapur is worth the visit because of the combination of the squares and community around the squares. I don't really feel like you can pick one square and say visit that one - its worth walking around to get a feel for the area.

Gorgeous place. The temples are exquisite - almost like in the movie set! It is wonderful to watch the locals and the local life that is going on around the square. There are lots of restaurants and shops to take a moment of rest and admire the art of the temples! A must see on your visit to Bakhtapur!

Bhaktapur is so full of amazing historical buildings some sadly damaged by the earthquake this thankfully was not. It's a gathering place for tourists and locals alike, during our visit there was a group of young schoolchildren sitting on the steps. It somehow seemed appropriate to see youngsters/Nepal's future generations in such a beautiful setting. Take time and enjoy.

Stunning. I was so taken with the temples and ordinary life going on under them. Only afterwards I realised that the whole of Taumadhi square is so understated! Well done Bhaktapur!

This square is part of Bhaktupur and is considered to be one of the best. I enjoyed eating at the New Nyatapola Cafe and taking pictures of the square. Traffic can be annoying and the place could be better without the annoying motorcycles but you will still enjoy the temples.

Taumadhi Square is part of Bhaktapur Durbar Square. The tallest temple in Nepal named Nyatapola Temple is situated in this area. It is a gathering place for the locals and the tourists. Numbers of cafes are in the surroundings. The area portrays ancient culture and architectural establishments.

My favourite place in Bhaktapur! Absolutely stunning, a sensation of Asian experience in a place! I spent hours sitting on the top of Nyatapola Temple next to locals. Go there in the afternoon when most of the one-day-trip tourists have left!

Had a lot of fun shopping here, I had better deals than in Thamel, and they had items I haven't seen elsewhere at great prices, so definitely a shopper's haven!
