Jagannath Temple, Kathmandu Overview

Jagannath Temple, located in the very famous Kathmandu Darbar Square, is most famous for its architecture and religious significance. One thing that draws tourists in large numbers is the exquisite erotic carving all over the structure. It was built in the early 16th century during the reign of King Mahendra of the Mala dynasty and is one of the oldest shrines in the city. From what remains now, one can get a gist of how fascinating the structure would have been. It is a two-storey building raised over a platform and built in the traditional pagoda-style architecture mostly made of wood and bricks. Some parts of the temple were damaged in an earthquake in 2015. However, some portions have been restored and open for the tourists to explore.
