Trip Planner: Asia / Nepal / Central Region / Bagmati Zone / Kathmandu Valley / Kathmandu / Jaganath (Krishna) Temple
Dating back to 1563, Jaganath (Krishna) Temple lures visitors and devotees with its immaculate architecture and enticing erotic carvings. The sanctuary stands on a three-tiered platform, built from wood and bricks in traditional pagoda style. In the corners see four miniature versions of the temple, all five enshrining Surya, Ganesha, Vishnu, and Bhagavati. Look out for the multi-headed and multi-armed crowned deities wearing ornate jewelry found on the struts of the temple. On the eastern side of the temple, the doors open for devotees to pay respect to their deities.

Jaganath (Krishna) Temple Reviews
個人旅行で訪問しました。歴史や建築物の背景など詳しく分かりませんが、みているだけで落ち着くような、不思議な場所でした。地元の学生たちや老人たちが日陰で休みながら座り、ただぼーっと過ごしている光景がなんだか良いな、と思いました。まさに映画の中のセットのようです。 more »I visited on a private trip. I don't know the history or the background of the building, but it was a strange place that would calm me down just by looking at it. I thought it would be nice to see local students and old people sitting in the shade, just spending their time in the shade. It's like a set in a movie.
Wyjątkowa architektura tego miejsca która przetrwała trzęsienie ziemi robi duże wrażenie . Świetnie zachowane ornamenty na ścianach oraz symbolika religijna . more »The unique architecture of this place that has survived the earthquake makes a big impression. Well preserved ornaments on the walls and religious symbolism.
peaceful and good place
Spiritual place in Kathmandu Durbar Square where locals visit more often. Attractive place around Durbar Square due to people busy taking pictures with large number of pigeons. This place is often crowded with locals and tourists. Offers different vibe around it.
