After leaving the Living Girl Temple, the tour guide took us to visit the Talai Pearl Temple, which was built in 1549. This 40-meter-high triple-eaves Golden Treasure Temple is the tallest temple building in Kathmandu and is said to have a typical Nepalese architectural style. Tarezu Bavani was the most respected goddess in the Mala Dynasty and was worshipped by the King of Mala as the goddess of the family. Therefore, the royal family temple was built on a platform 12 stories higher than the general temple. Unfortunately, because it is a Hindu Royal temple, visitors are not allowed to enter, so we can only enjoy the outside view outside the door. There is no honor in the tall temple in the courtyard wall, but besides a pair of colorful lion sculptures, the colorful lintels are also carved with various gods, which is impressive.
There are many temples in Nepal. The temple is exquisite in shape, beautiful in ancient architectural style and unique in sculpture decoration.
It was the Royal Monastery of the former Nepalese Royal Family. Non-Hindus are not allowed in. It can only be seen from a distance. Founded in the mid-17th century, it commemorates the goddess worshipped by the royal family at that time. It has always been the tallest building in Kathmandu.

However, after the thunderous bang on the afternoon of April 25, 2015, everything disappeared and the beautiful Duba Square was badly damaged. It is said that it will take several years to rebuild. Nevertheless, even if the restoration is more beautiful, the sense of vicissitudes of history can never be found back.
From the Indra Square, the first tall building to be seen was the Talai Pearl Temple. Built in 1564, it is a typical Nepalese pagoda-style red brick building with 3-storey roof and 12-storey base. She occupies the northeast corner of Duba Square by herself. It is the largest temple tower with the largest area. As the imperial temple of Nepal's Royal family, it is not open to the outside world at ordinary times. Only during the Dashan Festival, Nepalese nationals are allowed to worship in Nepal. On the fourth floor, according to the local people, there was a private prayer room for King Pratabmara, in front of which stood a statue of the king and his concubine on a circular stone pillar.
