In the southeast courtyard of Patan, you will suddenly see the looming shadows of an architectural marvel. This is the temple of Mahabouddha, a sacred place in the region. The temple, which was originally built in 1585 was entirely reconstructed after the 1934 earthquake. However, since the place didn’t have any blueprints or plans for work, the actual constructed temple is different from the original one.
Highlights:The temple has a lot of sunlight and is built in the typical Shikhara style. The hundreds of terracotta tiles that cover it have image of Buddha. The temple is also modeled on the actual Mahabouddha Temple at Bodhgaya in India. The Patan-style metal statues can be shopped near this place. While walking here you will also come across small Shaivite and Vasihnavite Temples.
