The Major attractions of Bhaktapur Darbar Square
55 Window Palace: 
This is the main architectural structure dominating the entire Durbar Square. This magnificent monument was built in 15th century AD. Seated on a huge column top in a position of prayer to God is King Bhupatindra Malla.
Golden Gate: 
This is the main entrance to the palace. The craftsman who worked on this wonderful gate must be from Heaven. It is an eternal beauty in itself.
Lion's Gate: 
This gate has two beautiful stone statues of Hindu deities installed on its either side. It is said that the hands of the artisans who produced this were cut off immediately after he gave a finishing touch to them. A jealous Bhadgaon King did this so that the artisan could not produce any more of such arts.
Mini Pashupati Temple: 
Some people call it a royal dream temple. Folklore says - once a Bhadgaon King, who was a great devotee of Lord Pashupati had a dream in which Lord told the king to build a temple for Pashupati right in front of this palace.
Vatsala Temple: 
This temple dedicated to a mother goddess is full of intricate work on stone. This temple is known for its dog-barking bell. This bell is believed to produce a death knell when it is rung up.
Nyatapola Temple:
It is the most famous pagoda in Nepal. Nyatapola in Newari language means fire tires - the symbol of five basic elements. This is the highest pagoda of Nepal ever built with such architectural perfection and artistic beauty. This temple is dedicated to Siddhi Laxmi, the Tantric goddess of supreme power and success.
