Short visit to the Rome of Nepal

Bhaktapur is also known as Rome of Nepal. We have been to Bhaktapur several times. Last time  my wife Dipana, Son Ritav and me were in Bhaktapur. We took a bus from Lagankhel to Dudhpati. We then entered the Datattraya area and then my son Ritav saw the sign board of Museum and requested to go inside. We visited two museums at that time. Those were 'Wood art Museum' and another  was 'Bronze and Brass Museum'. After visiting these two museum we went to Durbar Square in evening.
