Pass By: Bhaktapur, Bhaktapur, Kathmandu Valley, Bagmati Zone, Central Region
Among the three major cities of the Kathmandu Valley, Bhaktapur, to this date, is the living representation of how the entire Kathmandu Valley would have looked like during the medieval periods. The city is celebrated for its glorious architecture; sky-high temples built in pagoda style - which is believed to be the stairway to the heaven, fine clay pottery, and massive royal courtyards whose existence date back to the 12th century, where devotees, still, celebrate their pre-historic festivals by equal amount of gusto and passion.
Bhaktapurians are proud inhabitants of their city and culture. Most of the women would be seen in their traditional, Newari, attire, who would do their laundry in public - but artistically crafted - taps, farmers would be seen here and there carrying vegetables, as the city is also known as Bhadgaon, which means the City of Rice. This city has preserved the Newari value as a mother would keep their children safe, so it would be not hard to feel the aroma of ancient Newari culture once you reach the Bhaktapur.
