Bhaktapur
About Bhaktapur...
        Bhaktapur (also Bhadgaon or Khwopa) is an ancient Newari town in the east corner of the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal.
From time immemorial it lay on the route between Tibet/China and India. This position on the main caravan route made the town rich and prosperous.
This prosperity fueled the cultural life : the temple builders developed a Pagoda-style, spreading it through Tibet all the way to Japan. Finest of all is the seven-tiered, heaven piercing Nyatapola.

  Bhaktapur is a popular day-trip for tourists visiting Kathmandu. Lately, with the horrendous air-pollution of Kathmandu, more and more tourists are staying in Bhaktapur for a few days, ore even more !

  The German government started the Bhaktapur Development Project in 1974 and launched renovation works : temples, old buildings have been renovated, roads have been paved, a canalisation system has been built... After years of German involvement, the people of Bhaktapur have now started to initiate renovation projects by themselves. The result is a very well conserved, beautiful town.
