Bhaktapur lies in the eastern corner of the Kathmandu valley. Once the royal seat of the Malla kings, the name of the city literally translates to “City of Devotees”. Bhaktapur is one of the best preserved UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically more isolated than Kathmandu and Patan, it has a distinctly different language. Bhaktapur Durbar Square has the best-preserved palace courtyards, temples, wood, metal and stone artwork. The city is also famous for its special type of curd called ‘JU JU Dhau’ (King's curd).
