Bhaktapur, literally “Place of devotees”, also known as Bhadgaon or Khwopa, is an ancient Newar city in the east corner of the Kathmandu Valley, about 13 km from the capital city, Kathmandu. Bhaktapur was the largest of the three Newar Kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley, and was the capital of Nepal during the great “Malla Kingdom” until the second half of the 15th century. Today it is the third largest city in the Kathmandu Valley. Historically more isolated than the other two kingdoms, Kathmandu and Patan, Bhaktapur has a distinctly different form of Nepal Bhasa language.
