Pottery Square

There are two Pottery Squares in Bhaktapur. The first Pottery Square is located at Talako, some 500m to the southwest of Taumadhi Square and the other one in Suryamadhi, located to the East of Dattatreya temple and square. Here visitors will find potters giving shape and size to lumps of black clay, and earthenware they make ranges from such household goods as pots and jars to cheap souvenir items as animals and birds. As pottery in Bhaktapur is a family job, visitors may chance upon the entire family doing their parts of work.
