Nyatapola Temple Statue of Rajput wrestler Jayamel or Phattu

Phattu was one of Nepal's famous wrestlers

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

At the bottom of the Nyatapola Temple are two statues representing the Rajput wrestlers Jayamel and Phattu. They were reputed to have the strength of ten men. There is no clear indication to state who is who. However this is the statue to the right so hitherto "Phattu".

The two wrestlers can also be seen guarding the Dattatreya Temple in Bhaktapur.
