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.

Good news! "Bhairavnath Temple" survived the terrible April 25, 2015 earthquake virtually undamaged! The beautiful three-storeyed "Bhairavnath Temple" was built and rebuilt between the 17th and 18th centuries, honoring Lord Bhairav, the ferocious and dreadful aspect of God Shiva. As in most Hindu temples, the most sacred altars are not opened to non-Hinduists. Located on famous "Taumadhi Square", "Bhairavnath Temple"... More

This temple is maybe not very outstanding as compared to the other temples, but it is still worth the visit since you are already there. I just walked around and take few pictures.. there are some nice stone carving and so.. but nothing much in comparison.
