Bhaktapur, Nepal

Bhaktapur is another ancient town in Kathmandu Valley and the third old kingdom. It was formerly the capital of Nepal in the 15th century.

Just a 20 minute taxi ride from Patan and we arrived at the entrance of the old royal kingdom.

Bhaktapur is known as the ancient Newari town. It is also known as the City of Devotees and the City of Rice, as rice is one of the staple agricultural products in this city.

The city is now a UNESCO World Heritage site filled with temples, crafts and culture.
