The “City of Devotees,” Bhaktapur is a UNESCO World Heritage Site spanning four square miles. With its historic Durbar Square, ancient courtyards, and holy temples, the city was the crown jewel of the Malla Empire 700 years ago. 

Today it is the third largest city in the Kathmandu Valley, with a population of more than 80,000, of which the vast majority are still Newars.
