Nepal > Tour > Bhaktapur
Bhaktapur is in many ways the most medieval of the three major cities in the Kathmandu valley. Much of its glorious architecture dates from the end of the 17th century. The city is famous for its pagoda-style architecture. Tourists are more often attracted to the Hindu temples, pottery crafts, colourful markets and lively people of Bhaktapur.
