Erotic Elephants Carving in Bhaktapur

Erotic Elephants Carving in Bhaktapur

There are more than just elephants shown on this temple!

 
     
A little about ...   How to travel here ...

Outside the main gates to Bhaktapur Durbar Square are two small twin like temples. While the second's roof struts show depictions of everyday life the first has more tantric offerings.

The most famous of all these carvings is that of the elephants shown above. Aside from their unusual (for elephants) position they are perhaps best noted for having romantic intertwined trunks!

Find out more about this temple and more with my online guide to Bhaktapur.
