This temple is off the beaten path (can be hiked to from Nagarkot), which is why there isn't much upkeep from the local government - it's incredible that such a historical gem just exists out there. The temple was built around 500 AD and has...More

This is not a very big temple area, but it's a gem recognized as UNESCO world heritage. As it is hidden in the hills, it escaped destruction in the 15th century. It is the oldest temple in Nepal that has survived in its original state...More

Hiked the 14k from Nagarkot to this nice temple atop a small hill. It's worth the NR 300 entrance as it has wonderful wood and metal work.

You have to walk up on the road through the village. Only just before the temle there are a few stairs. Should not be a problem.
