This place is slightly away from main areas of Bhaktpur Darbar Square. Slightly less crowded compared to other attractions at Bhaktpur. The temple in itself is beautiful and picturesque. Great place and would like to visit again after few years.

Within the bhaktapur darbar square complex this temple had a wonderful carved stones structure and a beautiful dome. Even though earthquake hit the main structure the big bell is still standing right in front which is still operational.

This temple of Dattatreya is found in the Dattatraya square of Bhaktapur. Architecture is really beautiful of the temple and also has carved out stone statues. There is many wood carved structures in this temple. The craftsmanship and the skills is amazing especially on the woodwork.
