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.

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.

This is my first time visit to Bhaktapur. And it didn't disappoint me. The whole city buildings are amazing. Taudmadi square has Natayapola temple and Bhairavnath temple. Amazing that both survive the earthquake in 2015.
