Standing on the Taumadi Square in Badgang, Nyatapola Temple is the tallest Buddhist Pagoda in the Kathmandu Valley. It has five levels, also known as the five-level pagoda, about 30 meters high. It is one of the representative works of Nepal's traditional architectural style and one of Nepal's tourist symbols. It is a temple dedicated to Siddhi Lakshmi. Five groups of statues are arranged from the bottom to the top on the stone steps of the tower - the strongest local warrior (Diamond), elephant, lion, the monster with the head of the Griffin, and finally Singhini and Baghini, two lion and tiger goddesses. It is said that the gods depicted on each floor of the tower are 10 times more powerful than those on the next floor. You can walk up the stone steps to the top of the tower and overlook the whole square.
Sitting alone for a long time under the wooden pillars of Niatapo Temple in Taumadi Square. In the west of the oblique sun, the gentle afterglow sprinkles on the temples, ancient wells, sprinklers and other medieval buildings around the square, gazing at them for a long time, which makes people feel that time has gone backwards for centuries. Passengers in Middle East Asian countries charge NT$100 and other countries charge NT$1500. Local governments grant residents subsidies to encourage them to build traditional-style houses.
The tour guide led us through the busy commercial street to another square in the old city of Badgang, Taumadi Square. This square is the busiest and most crowded one in Badgang, because there is a Niatapoli temple in this square. Built in 1702, this temple is the highest Hindu temple in Nepal, dedicated to the goddess Hiti Lakshmi, which is also one of Nepal's famous monuments. As high as 30 meters, the temple can only reach the first floor of the temple by climbing hundreds of steps on the five-storey platform. The whole temple is also five-storey high. There are inclined pillars carved with various incarnations of the goddess Hiti Lakshmi on each floor. Unfortunately, standing too far away from the square, it can not be seen. It is said that there are 108 wooden inclined pillars under the temple. It's spectacular. Because in Nepalese, Niatapolia means five-storey, so this temple is also called five-storey tower. On the two sides of the steps of the Niatapoli temple, the goddess, eagle, elephant, lion and Hercules are guarded respectively. The lower the statue, the greater the strength it represents. We climbed up the base of the temple along the steps between these statues and looked down at the scenery around the square. The old and new buildings alternated. There were many shops, tourists and people shuttled, streets and alleys scattered.
Niatapola Temple, located in Duba Square, Badgang, was built in 1702. It is the highest Hindu temple in Nepal, and worships the goddess Chitilakshmi. The temple is 30 meters high, and it takes hundreds of steps to reach the top of the five-storey platform, because Niatapolia means the five-storey tower, also known as the five-storey tower. Standing on the top of the tower, there is a feeling of "a panoramic view of hills and hills". Nepalese students show naive and charming smiles on the steep stairs. Men and women chat casually in the square. This is Nepal.
Kathmandu Badgang Duba Square is known as "Nepal's Medieval Art Treasure". The five-storey pagoda of Niatapola Temple is one of the tourist signs of Nepal. The five-storey tower, 30 meters high, is also Nepal's tallest temple, and it is also a model of the architectural style of the Nival Temple. In a narrow street, there is the only well-preserved wooden peacock window in Nepal. Architecture and sculpture are extant works of medieval art.

The Niatapola Temple is the tallest in the Kathmandu Valley and the most spectacular and classic Nival building we have ever seen. It has five square red brick foundations and five four-storey roofs, which are decreasing upwards and extending invisibly, and it has added to the tall and tall temple. On both sides of the stone steps are the guardians of the temple. From the bottom up are Hercules, Elephants, Lions, Griffins and Goddesses. Their strength is contrary to their appearance. It is said that each layer of guardians has ten times the strength of the next layer. There is no access here. The gods are enshrined on the exterior walls of the buildings. People worship them outdoors.
