Fortunately, the earthquake did not destroy this temple. Today, we can still appreciate the exquisite wood carving craftsmanship of this temple, and there is also a very representative sculpture of Shiva, which is a very popular attraction.
The woodcut image of Shiva on this temple is really lifelike. He seems to be standing in front of the window of his house and looking out the street just like a normal woman. It's quite interesting, let's punch in.
In Kathmandu Durbar Square, you need to buy a ticket for 1,000 rupees per person. The wood-carved window frames are very finely carved. Shiva and his wife Parvati, the snow mountain goddess, are on the upper window, looking out, overlooking the flow of people below, they are lying by the window like an ordinary couple He laughed and chatted casually, his expressions were indifferent, as if he was releasing invisible power to protect the common people. The statue of the couple has become one of the most beautiful sculptures in Durbar Square.
The temple was built at the order of King Bahadur of the Shah Dynasty in the late 18th century. Above the main entrance of the temple, the statues of Shiva and Parvati are also one of the representative attractions of Durbar Square. The story of Shiva and Parvati originated from ancient India.
Shiva Parvati Temple on Durbar Square in Kathmandu is the most famous temple on the square. This is a two-story wooden temple built on three-story masonry steps. In front of the steps at the entrance of the temple, there are two huge stone lion carvings. On the front of the temple, there are five wood-carved windows and doors with complex and exquisite carvings. On the second floor of the window lattice, statues of Shiva and Parvati leaned out from the middle window, overlooking all beings. Such architectural sculptures make people feel refreshed, and all kinds of conjectures are born.
We took photos at Durbar Square in Kathmandu, where the crowds were so crowded, and compared the Chinese profile to reconfirm the temple pavilions that we have seen or haven't seen. Starting from the tall linden tree outside the gate of the Taleju Goddess Temple, I watched a Hindu temple on the northernmost side of the square next to the incense of residential houses. From this to the south, you will first see a very powerful giant statue on the left side of the road, about 5 meters high, brightly colored, hideous, with 6 arms holding a sword, a magic weapon and the enemy’s head, and two feet. Step on a body that is said to be a devil. This is one of the transformations of one of the Hindu gods Shiva, the terrifying black Belabo. Many local people came here specially, bowed down at her feet, kissed her feet, and then put coins or lighted a lantern under the statue, folded their hands and then retired. On the right side of the road is a temple with a different style. It is said that this three-story octagonal Pagoda temple is extremely rare in Nepal. It is enshrined in the black god Kushin who plays the flute and two dances. goddess. This octagonal temple is called Kurishna Temple, and Kurishna is the eighth incarnation of Lord Shiva. Hinduism is really too complicated. Going further, I saw a Shiva-Parvati temple built on a three-story platform. In addition to the five wooden doors and the exquisite wood carvings on the window lattices, the most striking thing is the upper floor. The painted woodcut statue of Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati in the central window. The gods are standing in front of the window looking down at the tourists on the square like a mortal. It really has a taste of heaven and earth. It is said that this is the representative landscape of Durbar Square in Kathmandu.
