Observe the potters at work at Pottery Square, and then take the opportunity to purchase finished articles from the shops that line the square. Generations of potters have worked in this area--actually a network of small streets--one of two traditional pottery hubs in Bhaktapur. Watch as artisans fire the pots in straw and mud kilns at the back of the square, and then stroll around to admire the rows upon rows of pots baking in the sun, rotated every so often by their maker. You can combine your visit with a stop at the nearby temples and shrine. Make Pottery Square part of your personalized Bhaktapur itinerary using our Bhaktapur day trip planner.
