Bhaktapur is a very crowded and congested place. There isn’t much space to own a four-wheeler but a scooter or a bike might be very useful. Bhaktapur is an ancient city where you can see lots of cultural heritage such as the 55-windowed palace, the Bhaktapur museum and the national art gallery. Bhaktapur is also famous for the variety of street foods and had it’s signature curd that is ‘juju dhau’ which means the king of curds.

Bhaktapur lies in Kathmandu Valley which is around 15 km from Kathmandu Airport. This city is also an ancient kingdom of Malla Dynasty. there are a lot of Hindu temples as well. The neighbouring districts are Kathmandu and Lalitpur. Although, this city might be rich in culture and tradition, it is quite polluted.

Bhaktapur is small and beautiful. There is greenery everywhere. People here are mostly the primitive farmers of our country who produce organic vegetables. I’s surrounded by lovely people in harmony and love each other. The food here is so good that you will lick your fingers after finishing it.
