The three storey Indreshwar Mahadev Temple In the village centre Is a shiva temple, built in 1294 and rebuilt in the 15th century. In 1988 an earthquake caused serious damage. In its original form it may well have been the oldest temple in Nepal.Kathmandu’s Kasthamandap may predate it,but Kasthamandap was originally built as a dharamsala, not as a temple. The temple is certainly a fine one and the roof struts depicting the various incarnations of Shiva and some discreetly amorous couples are masterpieces of Newari woodcarving.To the south of the main temple is the rectangular Unamanta Bhairab Temple, with three faces peering out of the upstairs windows, rather like the Shiva-Paivati Temple in Kathmandu’s Durbar Square. A small. double-roofed Shiva temple stands by the northwestern corner, while a Vishnu shrine with an interior 2m.high image of the god faces the temple from the west.
