Latarambeshwor Mahadev temple is one Shiva temple that lies in the eastern hill station of Bhaktapur. It would approximately take 15-20 mins to reach the hill station on foot, from the Sanga-Dhulikhel Highway.
Yes, you can get off the bus at Sanga and walk a little ahead toward the east until you find a way to your left which would lead you to the Latarambeshwor Mahadev temple.
Moreover, the path is quite dusty, somewhere, it is pitched but out of all these Nepalese road’s characteristics, the road adheres us to nature. That soft and cold wind, with a little bit of touch of dust, dabbles you with the favor of remoteness. ( anyway don’t forget to wear the mask, you’ll definitely gonna need it.)
Well, the architecture of the temple is recently concluded, which really is so fascinating.
It is said that it took about eighteen years to complete this structure of the temple. At first, the locals, by themselves collected the money to build the temple which later on was supported by the local government and thus this outstanding result came out.
It is an open temple, but unlike other temples that you find in Bhaktapur, it seems a little distinct. The foremost part of the temple is erected using bricks, even in those segments where normally, the wood is used like, in the windows.
The seven pinnacles and other miniature statues of Ganesha, Durga, and Saraswati on whirls of the temple give you a vibe of peacefulness and a complete shrine.
No, it doesn’t. It lies at Suryabinayak municipality in the north-east hill station of Bhaktapur.
It is a sacred Hindu temple and a perfect hiking destination.
You could choose a local bus or hire a private vehicle to reach over there.
No, you don’t need to pay any entrance fee to enter there.
There are some local shops on the way.
Yes, it is. Even a single woman could travel here alone. Yet, I suggest accompanying a guide.
Well, there are a lot of things that you can do like shopping, sightseeing, eating different foods, also photography. But, capturing one corner of the square and having a sunset view would be the most satisfying thing that you would experience.
While being in Bhaktapur, you must mind few things like taking out of your shoes while entering the temple and other religious sites. Likewise, you might not be allowed to click pictures of some specific events or places. You should consider these things.
As we informed you earlier it is all safe for solo traveling which means you can travel without a guide. But we also recommend you to have a certified guide who would help you to understand the authentic Bhaktapur and the stories carved all over the monuments.
