Taleju Bhawani Temple, Hanuman Dhoka – Today it was OPEN for Public – Photos

Taleju Bhawani Temple, Hanuman Dhoka

Taleju Bhawani temple located at Hanumandhoka in Kathmandu is opened for general public only on the ninth day of Dashain festival every year. For this year it was today.

I was there this afternoon and saw thousands of devotees stand in line for hours to offer their prayer to the goddess.

Built by a Malla king in 1620BS, it has since been the patron deity of Nepal’s royal families.
