Bhaktapur city, one of the world heritage sights in Nepal is renowned for its architecture of centuries, vibrant Newari culture has often been described as an open museum. The world's largest pagoda temple Nyatapola dominates the city's skyline. The city is filled with architectural master pieces, fabulous wood carvings, stone sculptures and metal work.

It is advised to stay a night or two at Bhaktapur while you are in Kathmandu because one day sight seen tour could not be sufficient to learn the evening and morning activities of Bhaktapur people such as vegetable market, Bhajan (a group of local musician playing music instruments every evening in their neighbourhood.)

On top of that one can capture the spectacular landscape of the old city with rising and falling sun in his camera & Bhaktapur may be the cool place to refresh the stress that comes from noise and dust pollution from main city of Kathmandu.

Peaceful roof top restaurant with nice view of the city, serving the most typical newari dishes in a reasonable price. The guest house is designed for the budget tourists providing maximum satisfaction with minimum amount.
