Within the premises of Bhaktapur durbar square, you can encounter different types of temples. Among them, the very first pagoda styled temple which you will encounter, while entering from the western gate to the Bhaktapur durbar square will be the Gopinath temple.

Yes, the temple is one of the best examples of spectacular wood carvings which you can observe on the doors and windows of the temple. The temple is one which is made out in traditional Nepalese style among Char Dham temples of Bhaktapur Durbar Square.

Also, the struts, which are filled with the images of incarnations of Lord Vishnu and other deities. That makes this temple more refined and elegant.

This temple is popular as the Gopinath temple but alternatively, also recognizes under the name of Radha Krishna temple. Furthermore, This temple is also famous as the dwarikanath temple because of a statue established inside this temple.

The statue established inside the temple is of Lord Krishna. That seems more artistic and admiring. Not only the statue of Lord Krishna but also the statue of Balram and Radha are beautifully placed over there.

There is a guarding image of two stone lions and a standing pillar in front of the temple, which consists of a garuda image on its top.
