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...

These idols are located near the Main Gate. They are next to the two beautifully carved Lions on either side of the entrance to the Shree Padma Higher Secondary School. 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.
