Bhaktpur is an ancient Newar town in the east corner of the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. Many people who go to Kathmandu miss this place. But I would really recommend to visit this 1427 A.D. town that is rich in culture and gives you a feel of the life style at that time. It is called a city of festivals because here people celebrate festivals each month starting from new year to the end of the year.
I would love to live at this place but I only had a day to visit this beautiful enchanting place so I would love to share the pics of this place for your pleasure. I hope it will provide you a window to seek into the past and dream about the life at that era on this part of Earth.
Let’s take the journey through the magical world of Bhaktapur
