The city of Bhaktapur, also known as the ?orthodox city? is located in the Kathmandu valley, at an altitude of about 1400 meters above sea level. The city is situated within a short ride distance from Kathmandu city (about 14 km) and it is recommended to dedicate a full day tour between the ancient streets and squares or Bhaktapur.

The city was built by King Anand Dev in 889 AD and at the beginning was an independent city ruled by the Malla dynasty between 12th to 18th centuries. These very religious and art loving kings created a city with beautiful religious structures. The most outstanding structures among them are situated in Durbar Square, the central square of the city that still maintains the glory of the past rulers.

The city of Bhaktapur is also known for its impressive wood carvings that decorate many of the city?s windows.

UNESCO declared Bhaktapur in 1979 as a World Heritage Site.
