Overview

Welcome to the beautiful ancient city Bhaktapur. A place small in area yet rich and intact with best preserved heritages, lively culture and history, palace courtyards, temples and impressive arts and architectures. As the name suggests Bhakta means “devotee” and pur refers to “city” so this place is commonly known as city of devotees. Believed to have been settled in 12th century Bhaktapur retains wonderful medieval ambiance as most of the constructions and development of the monuments were done during that particular time of Malla dynasty. Bhaktapur is also one of the world heritage sites among the 7 heritage sites enlisted within Kathmandu valley by UNESCO. Join me on this virtual live tour through Bhaktapur.

  • Watch the local pottery arts
  • Admire the the intricate carvings (wood, metal and stone)

Your local host

Namaste!

My name is Monica and I am born and raised in Kathmandu. I have been working as a tour guide since  five years and this is the profession I always wanted to be in since my school-days because travelling, exploring and communicating with people from all around the world have always been my interest. I love to share my enthusiasm and passion with you and to share my knowledge about my country, culture, tradition, fascinating nature and many more. May it be the time of devastating earthquake or the present pandemic time I have always been hopeful about being back to normal and starting the passionate job I do.

I was never in Bhaktapur and was interested  in the highlights . The host was oke, but the camera was in my opinion not professional. It is difficult to film  when there is a sun at the sky, so the the camera man should prepare  before his place for filming. In the street you did not see the houses because at the end of the street there was the light of the sun . I think that if there are 4 squares you should show them ( prepare a short film???)  My advice: make the visitor curious by showing as much as possible ( details) for nothing is better than the real experience

Monica the tou is great. You really show us the nice places to see in Bhaktapur. I now realise wat i missed earlier this year when i was there fore one day. As soon as we can travel again i will visit the places you show. You told and show us a lot of interresting things and the interaction also was very good. We could ask any questions we want and you answered them after you we're finished with you're story and that i appriciatted. Keep on going and thank you for the nice walk in Bhaktapur.

Prachtig tour!

Een mooie wandeling door Bhaktapur gemaakt. Vorig jaar hebben wij daar zelf gelopen en nu voelde het of je daar weer aanwezig was. Alle hoogte punten weer gezien en goed uitgelegd en weer gegeven. Voor herhaling vatbaar! Namaste!

Excellent tour!

Magnificent walking tour through the ancient city center of Bhaktapur. I have been there myself two years ago and this tour really brought me back to this beautiful and atmospheric place! Superb video and audio quality, very good interactions and a very detailled and clear explanation of the buildings, sights and activities around Durbar Square, Taumadhi Square, Pottery Square and the beautiful streets in between!
