This Uma Maheshwor temple is made off of stones and it was once somehow impacted by the plants of the pipal. Until the renovation, the temple was half overlaid by the trees. It almost looked like the trees were the roof of this temple. But today, we can clearly see the pinnacle of this temple.

The temple is one of the most artistic temples of Bhaktapur that were made in a Shikhara Style. Cause, unlike other temples, it is full of pristine carvings, especially on the pillars.

There is an image of Uma Maheshwor in the sanctum of the temple. The image of this temple was once stolen which after the worshipping was totally stopped there.

It is said that the temple was first made during the reign of Prana Malla.
