Located at just 16km away from the chaos of Kathmandu city, One of the most important temples of Goddess Durga, Vatsala Durga Temple is located at Bhaktapur Durbar Square. The temple is famous for its amazing architecture design constructed uniquely among other temples in Bhaktapur. Late king Jagat Prakash Malla built this temple in 1672 in the name of Goddess Durga to protect our historical significance and culture. You can find many devotees visiting this temple to perform pujas and yagnas for the goddess to gain happiness, prosperity, purity, and salvation in life. A huge Taleju bell is just located at the side of the temple to mark morning and evening prayers. The most famous and attractive 55 Windows Royal Palace is also situated opposite to this temple. This area is surrounded by many religious temples and attractions so, you can find many tourists roaming around this place. We would recommend you to visit this important religious site if you are near the Bhaktapur area of Kathmandu valley.
Vatsala Temple was built in 1672 by King Jagat Prakash Malla while the Taleju Bell which was in front of the temple (Temple was destroyed in 2015 quakes) was placed there by King Jaya Ranjit Malla in 1737. The beautiful Taleju Bell is still standing. I have rated it 5 stars based on a strong hope that this beautiful temple is going to be rebuilt to it's former glory.
