Within the premises of Bhaktapur Durbar Square, with interesting architecture though damaged by earth quake. Worth a quick look.

I prefer this to the Durbar Square. The Nyatapola temple is a beauty. This square is spacious and lively.

A busy square in Bhaktapur and thank god the impressive 5 storied pagoda still stands after the 2015 earthquake. It can use a little clean up though because plants and grass is growing from the roofs. Still great to soak up the special atmosphere.

I loved this bustling ancient square with its towering pagodas. It is also the focus of a busy local market, where people lay out their wares on the old worn pavement.

The whole of this gem called Bhaktapur is breaking with interesting buildings and squares nod this one is one of the best. Great all buildings in an atmospheric square with the impressive Nyaatapola Pagoda, the highest in the Kathmandu plateau. If you are in Bhaktapur don't miss it

I think this is one of the best cozy squares in the Kathmandu Valley. Closed in with traditional restaurants surrounding it and the coming and goings of the Bhaktapur local community.

This square is beautiful and if you walk up the steps to the main temple in the square you will get a great 360 view from above. There is some earthquake damage but this will not mar your visit.
