Bhaktapur Durbar Square, (Nepal Bhasa: Devanagari : ख्वप लायकू, Prachalit Nepal alphabet:𑐏𑑂𑐰𑐥 𑐮𑐵𑐫𑐎𑐹) is the royal palace of the old Bhaktapur Kingdom, 1,400 metres (4,600 ft) above sea level. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Bhaktapur Durbar Square is located in the current town of Bhaktapur, also known as Khwopa, which lies 13 km east of Kathmandu. While the complex consists of at least four distinct squares (Durbar Square, Taumadhi Square, Dattatreya Square and Pottery Square), the whole area is informally known as the Bhaktapur Durbar Square and is a highly visited site in the Kathmandu Valley

If you love culture, friendly locals, and great Nepalese hospitality... Then Bhaktapur Durbar Square is your place! I spent a good 3 days here and loved every moment of it. From the mountain view landscapes (which I ran to from the place I was staying at) to the local dishes to exploring the local town, there's definitely plenty to do in this historical neighbourhood. And if you love trying new foods, be sure to go to their 'local' restaurants and try all their delicacies. It's a little different but worth trying! Bhaktapur will always have a place in my heart.

Beautiful historical place. Rejuvenating after fall during earthquake. Nice place to be with family or friends but at times it is too crowded especially by tourists. And you may not have your expected quality time with your loved ones. And do not forget to visit the museum.

Visiting the Bhaktapur Durbar Square One of the best places in Nepal, Bhaktapur is the perfect blend of authentic and modern worlds. Although, it is touched with modernization, there still are places where you could find authentic and ancient buildings and also some new buildings built in authentic designs. Situated at the center of Bhaktapur city is the Bhaktapur Durbar Square, truly a paradise on earth. The wide courtyards of the square accommodate old Malla palaces as well as some ancient and most popular temples. Also the temples and palaces are exceptionally carved in the struts, gateways, windows and lintels. It actually is a museum in itself that has preserved and conserved the history of our ancestors till today. It is a pride of our nation as one could be lost in its authentic environment and forget about the tall modern buildings and structures of Kathmandu.

This UNESCO world heritage site is magnanimous and elegant. The architecture coped in the wood carvings, walls and stones is amazingly wonderful. While visit there I found it having enough space to roam around. Talking with locals, this historical place has significant cultural value and locals are keeping the tradition alive. Being in Kathmandu, if you miss to visit this place then you missed the priceless treasure.

One of the best Historical Landmarks in Nepal; rich in art & crafts, culture, tradition, feasts and festivals! Lots of temples around! Enlisted among World Heritage Sites by UNESCO! Hence a place worth a visit!

Environment is quite soothing. Some of the good hotels and restaurants can we found here with reasonable prices.

Nice to walk around, this place covers wide area you can find local houses, restaurants, shops, temples, and all stuff Nepalese would shop here I saw mostly young people. Famous souvenirs are King’s curd and pottery. At first glance the king’s curd looks like a candle in temple I almost miss it. It’s sold in local convenient store putting together with soft drink. King’s curd tastes very nice like yogurt but its texture is like thick pudding or mousse, recommended! Sugar cane drink also tastes very nice with its natural fragrance :)

A great place to go if you want a glimpse of the old capital of Nepal. The architecture is insightful. You may see statues of women warriors holding guard dogs and their children behind them. A representation of women guarding their households. A lot to shop and nice coffee shops too.

Best of all. A walk along the square lets you explore on your own or with a guide and stops at several of the best historical sites. The newari food around these place is awesome.
