The Ancient 'City of Culture'

"Where there nothing else in Nepal, save the Durbar Square of Bhatgaon (Bhaktapur), it would still be amply worth making a journey halfway round the globe to see."

E.A. Powell,
The Last Home of Mystery,
1929, London

Bhaktapur, literally means the 'City of Devotees', is renowned for its elegant art, fabulous culture, colourful festivals, traditional dances and the typical Newar lifestyle.

The city, spreading over 7km2 and lying 12km east of Kathmandu was founded in the 12th centuryby King Anand Dev Malla
