Bhaktapur's Taumadhi Square is a square in the old city that has been designated as a World Heritage Site. The square, which is a tourist attraction, is cobbled and has several Hindu temples around it.

Some of them were once Hindu temples, but now they are secular. The architecture in the upper part of this photo is it. It used to be a real Hindu temple, but now it is a café. It seems to me that it is somewhat fearful to drink coffee in a place where a god used to sit. But I guess many people don't think about such things. This coffee shop is very popular with tourists.
