Halfway between Chhetrapati and Durbar Sq the Naa Devi Temple is dedicated to Kali, Shiva’s destructive consort. It’s also known as the Seto Kali (White Kali)Temple. Although the temple, with its three tiers, golden roof and red and white guardian lions, is quite old, some of the decorations are clearly more recent additions. It is said that Kali’s powers protected the temple from the 1934 earthquakes which destroyed so many other temples in the valley. A Malla king once stipulated that a dancing ceremony should be held for the goddess every 12 years, and dances are still performed on the small dance platform that is across the road from the temple.
