Description

Durbar Square in Bhaktapur is on the list of UNESCO world cultural heritage sites. The Durbar Square is the major centre of all the activities going in Bhaktapur. This place was greatly destroyed by the 1934 earthquake and became more spacious. This place is still an architectural showpiece with numerous superb examples of the skills of Nepali artists and craftsmen over the centuries. Some of the places which are still present in the Durbar Square are the ruined palace, Siva Parvati temple, Siva temple, two large stone lions, two fine statues that represent the 18-armed Ugrachandi Durga and 12-armed Bhairav and some smaller temples of Rameshwar, Bhadri, Krishna and Shiva. Another main feature of the Durbar Square is the life size gilded statue of Bhupatindra Mall, seated on a tall stone pillar and faces the Golden Gate. This Malla King was responsible for most of the building activity in Bhaktapur. Notable architectural structures in the Durbar Square are the Bhairavnath Temple, Dattatray Temple, Pujahari Math Monastery, The Golden Gate, Palace of 55 Windows and the Nyatapola Temple.
