Taleju Bell, Bhaktapur durbar square

  • When the kings ruled over Nepal, grievances were not solved through a toll free, customer care number. Rather, it was solved with the Taleju Bell. Of course, there weren’t any phones back then so the rulers found out new, unique ways to hear their disciples. The bell, which is ancient and huge hangs between two stout pillars, providing access to be rung.



    Highlights
    : The bell was erected by King Vishnu Malla in 1736. The idea for its construction was to make kings more accountable to the citizens. Over the years, petitioners have rung this bell to alert the king about their grievances. And their issues were sorted out. The bell was broken during the 2015 earthquake disaster, however the pavilion stayed intact. The place is being restored. The bell pavilion has an ornamental bridge that should be explored as well.

    Location
    : Patan, Nepal.

    Timings
    : From morning to evening.
