My Nepal Trip Part 6: Bhaktapur (Walking Back In Time Photo Gallery)

I like Bhaktapur for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it is one of the few towns I've visited that have not succumbed much to the tide of modernisation and development thus offering a break from the banalities of the typical landscape setting. Being in this town is like being transported a few decades back to when life wasn't as sophisticated and high tech, and threading its ancient pathways that are dotted with century old buildings and monuments is like walking back in time giving one opportunities to get an insight into the past.  
Bhaktapur is also a town which has proudly preserved its tradition and culture. The lifestyle of its people though devoid of glamour and opulence, seems to lack not in vibrancy, colours and intrigue.

Posted below are some memory photos of this ancient town and the lifestyle of its beautiful people.
