The Bhimsen Temple is dedicated to the God of business and trade, Bhimsen, who was one of the five Pandavas in Mahabharata. It is located just beside the Krishna temple in Patan so you will be able to visit two places in a short duration of time. Only Hindus are allowed to come into the temple. The architecture of the place is absolutely mind blowing. It possesses a rich history and is a very popular tourist attraction. It is entirely magical and spiritual, such is the power of the aura of the temple.
Dedicated to Bhimsen, one of the five Pandvas, the Bhimsen Temple at the end of Durbar Square is a sacred religious place in the region. Bhimsen is considered to be the god of trade and business. It is also believed that he has superhuman strength. That’s why the drawings and carvings in the temple depict him as a red muscleman, someone who is crushing and elephant with a knee or lifting a horse.
Highlights: The pagoda has three storey and what makes it different than other temples is that it has an unusual rectangular plan. The temple was built centuries ago and rebuilt in 1682, after which it has been restored thrice- in 1935, 1967 and most recently after the 2015 earthquake. Non-Hindus can climb to the upper level to view the wide eyed statue once the repairs are complete.
