Our "tour guide" completely ignored the Bhairavnath temple to spend time showing us the much more famous 5-story temple next door...until I started photographing Bhairavnath. Then he eagerly told us about the entrails hanging on the outside of it.

This is apparently the "male temple" in the square and does very much get overshadowed by it's much bigger next door neighbour. It is very beautiful in it's own right though and the carvings are very intricate.

The carving on the big stones were so living that it seems they would speak and walk around. I really enjoyed visiting this place. Recommended for the refreshments and sight seeing.

This temple is also found situated in the Taumadhi Square of Bhaktapur. It is 3 tiered story in the Pagoda style. Bhairavnath temple is just across from the Nyatapola temple. Like every other temple it has its own unique designs.
