After a few days in busy Kathmandu, we decided to take a day trip to Bhaktapur—a nearby town filled with temples and ancient buildings. It was great, we walked on the cobbled streets going from temple to temple, watched traditional ceramics being made, and enjoyed delicious Juju Dhau, literally “king of yogurt”!
Bhaktapur still conserves its traditional water ponds that were used as communal water sources by the community. You can see people bathing, washing their clothes, or worshiping a nearby statue.
A day spent in the ancient city was a reminder of the living history of Nepal. It is filled with religious devotion, breathtaking architectural and artistic treasures, incredible food, and many friendly faces. We really liked it here, a much needed respite from the rickshaw and motorcycle filled capital. In Bhaktapur, life goes by slowly…

Simon got a bit obsessed with the ever-present chickens! 😉
