a little hidden temple in bhaktapur

Tuesday, January 22:  Straightaway upon entering Bhaktapur, Batu takes me to a small temple hidden away in a small square.  Since it takes me awhile to get used to his thick Nepali accent, and even when I do get used to it I can still barely understand much of what he says, whatever he tells me about this little hidden temple is lost.  Usually after returning home I can somehow piece together the names of the places I saw, either by looking at a map or matching a description in a guidebook with what I saw.  In this case, I know nothing.  But.  Here it is anyway. 🙂

We leave the temple and proceed down narrow winding lanes to Durbar Square….
