I grew around temples most of my childhood. There was a temple in each and every corner of the street and they were also the most prominent landmarks for any address. So we knew well how different each temple are, and I know a lot of foreigners confused at how we can tell the difference of which temple is which, by the look of its GAJUR (the crown on the top), its CHATT (tiled roof), its shape and so on.

Can anybody recognize this famous temple at Bhaktapur?
