What you will experience

Our tour kicks off with a visit to the Palace of 55 Windows in the Bhaktapur Durbar Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, dates to the time of King Bhupatindra Malla in 1754. A key feature is its 55 ornate windows. Entering the palace you will encounter the National Art gallery where you can browse around admiring the great display of many treasured exhibits that date back many centuries and offer a window into Nepal’s old times. The palace entrance, or the Golden Gate, known as Sunko Dhoka in Nepali, is a masterpiece in repousse art. Eminent English art critic and historian Percy Brown described the Golden Gate as "the most lovely piece of art in the whole Kingdom; it is placed like a jewel, flashing innumerable facets in the handsome setting of its surroundings." Close to the palace are some fine temples from ancient times. We shall now stop for ‘Tchya’, the traditional milk and spicy tea at a Café’ from where we can enjoy a beautiful view of the valley. From here we will head to Bolachhen, also known as Potter’s Square and watch the artisans at work. We will also explore some of the by lanes and backstreets of Bhaktapur where we will also discover some interesting sights worth taking pictures of.
