Bhaktapur, truly means Place of enthusiasts. Otherwise called Khwopa, it is an old Newa city in the east corner of the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal, around 8 miles 13 km from the capital city, Kathmandu. It is situated in Bhaktapur District in the Bagmati Zone. It is authoritatively partitioned into 10 wards. Khwopa was the biggest of the three Newa kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley and was the capital of Nepal amid the incomparable 'Malla Kingdom' until the second half of the 15th century. It has a populace of more than 81,728, of which most by far are still Newa.
Generally more separated than the other two kingdoms, Kathmandu and Patan, Bhaktapur has an unmistakably extraordinary type of Nepal Bhasa dialect. Bhaktapur has the best-safeguarded castle yards and old downtown area in Nepal and is recorded as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its rich culture, sanctuaries, and wood, metal and stone works of art. This is upheld by the reclamation and protection endeavors of German-supported Bhaktapur Development Project BDP. The city is celebrated for an exceptional kind of dahi yogurt called "Ju Juking dhaucurd”. It is experienced by the curd producers that the essence of curd arranged in this area can't be discovered somewhere else all over Nepal.
